E3 Lithium expands lab to include production of Lithium Carbonate

E3 Lithium is expanding its Calgary-based lab to manufacture battery products, including lithium carbonate

  • By ICN Bureau | May 11, 2024

E3 Lithium, a leader in Canadian lithium, is excited to announce it is expanding the Calgary-based lab to incorporate the equipment to complete the polishing and production of battery products, such as lithium carbonate and lithium hydroxide.

E3 Lithium’s development facility, located at the University of Calgary, has been operational since early 2021. The facilities' focus has been on the development and verification of Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) processing technologies.

The internal team of experts has been beneficial in ensuring that E3 Lithium successfully completed the necessary steps towards technology development and selection, including verification testing of third-party DLE processes to support the design and decision making for the commercial facility. E3 also has its own internal analytics team that enables the Company to efficiently and quickly produce consistent results from the various testing processes.

With the definition of the downstream processes utilizing chemical conversion to produce lithium carbonate and then lithium hydroxide, E3 will deploy the same validation, verification and optimization strategy to the conversion processes.

“Developing this capability in-house offers significant advantages in terms of result accuracy, cost-effectiveness and flexibility” said Chris Doornbos, President and CEO of E3 Lithium.

“By building and operating scaled down equipment that closely mimics commercial operations, our highly skilled lab team will verify and optimize the process. The results the lab will produce will support the design and operation of the Company’s commercial plant and will bring efficiency to our future commercial operations by offering prompt and accurate data and analysis.”
