Standard Lithium Ltd. (TSX.V: SLL) (FRA: S5L) (OTC: STLHF), a lithium-focused exploration company, this morning announced completion of its prototype pilot plant to be used for its selective crystallization process. Standard Lithium’s proprietary process is designed to selectively crystallize “battery-quality” lithium carbonate from concentrated lithium chloride solutions, and, to date, testing has yielded lithium carbonate material of over 99.5 percent purity. The pilot prototype is the result of a joint partnership with Saltworks Technologies Inc. and will initially operate out of the company’s facility in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. If results from the initial two- to three-month pilot are positive, Standard Lithium intends to proceed with the commissioning and construction of a full-scale crystallization pilot plant at its southern Arkansas project site.
Standard Lithium President and COO Dr. Andy Robinson stated in the news release, “We’re very excited to have this prototype pilot plant built and commissioned, and we are very grateful to Saltworks Technologies Inc. for their knowledge, expertise and diligence in designing, fabricating and commissioning this prototype so quickly. It’s our hope that we can demonstrate how sophisticated modern crystallisation technologies developed and transferred from the pharmaceuticals industry can be adapted for use in the modern world of high purity lithium chemicals.”
