TEST PLANT CONTRACT TO PRODUCE LITHIUM FROM BRINE AGREED WITH GEOLITH
15th April 2021
GeoCubed Ltd has met its first delivery milestone by agreeing a contract with Geolith SAS (who are based in France), to supply a Test Plant to capture lithium from geothermal brine, using Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technology.
The Test Plant will use Geolith’s innovative Li-Capt process, which is based on microfiber materials with selective absorption properties, to act as a “filter” and selectively capture the lithium in a single step.
The Test Plant will sit within a container and be operated by Geolith to process geothermal brines (provided by Geothermal Engineering Ltd.). The process will deliver a concentrated lithium chloride solution and prove that DLE can work effectively on Cornish brines.
This work will take place at the Cornish Lithium site at United Downs at the beginning of June 2021.
