Mangrove CEO talks economical lithium refining on the Battery Insiders podcast
Lithium battery manufacturers have a choice to make based on simple economics, spend a lot or relatively little for battery-grade lithium hydroxide.
If you’re getting lithium from brine, the sun evaporates the water, leaving lithium carbonate. But to convert that to battery-grade lithium hydroxide, you would need a second plant.
Tune in to Battery Insiders at 25:54 to hear the discussion about how Mangrove’s electrochemical process takes brine straight to battery-grade lithium, eliminating the need for that second plant and saving lithium and battery producers millions.
