E3 Lithium CEO Chris Doorbos joined Steve Darling from Proactive to share news regarding a major milestone achieved by the company. E3 Lithium has successfully produced battery-quality lithium hydroxide monohydrate (LHM) with a purity level of 99.78%.
The process to produce LHM begins with the purification and concentration of lithium concentrate obtained through Direct Lithium Extraction, which leads to the production of lithium carbonate.
The purity of the solid LHM is a critical factor for the sale of the product to the battery industry. Generally, a purity level greater than 99.5% is accepted as battery quality.
E3 Lithium is actively collaborating with major equipment vendors to develop the downstream refining processes required for a commercial facility. The lithium concentrate produced from the DLE field pilot plant operations will be used for the ongoing development and testing of this refining process.
Additionally, the company will continue its engineering work to support the completion of a Pre-Feasibility Study on the Clearwater Project.
This significant achievement in producing battery-quality LHM underscores E3 Lithium's commitment to advancing its lithium production capabilities and supplying high-purity lithium products to the growing battery industry.
The successful production of LHM positions the company as a key player in the lithium sector, with the potential to contribute to the clean energy transition.
