Allnorth assists Standard Lithium to extract lithium, the key ingredient in batteries for electric vehicles and smartphones, from brine at their flagship project in Southern Arkansas

Monday, June 10, 2019

VANCOUVER, B.C., - Allnorth is currently working on a project for Standard Lithium, a specialty chemical company that efficiently extracts lithium from brine, by providing technical services including commissioning and operating manuals, specialized calculations, and fine particle classification flowsheets for their “Lanxess Project” in Southern Arkansas which is home to North America’s largest brine production and processing facilities.

Standard Lithium’s patent-pending rapid lithium extraction process has the potential to reduce the recovery time of extracting lithium from brine from the current industry method that takes years to as little as several hours. The process may also prove to be much more environmentally friendly with a significantly smaller footprint than the conventional processes. This novel processing approach has not yet been used to extract and process lithium from brines at a commercial scale anywhere globally.
