Virtual Ribbon Cutting LiSTR Direct Lithium Extraction Plant El Dorado Arkansas
Standard Lithium, an innovative technology and lithium project development company, marks the official commencement of operations at the Company’s Arkansas LiSTR Direct Lithium Extraction facility, with a virtual ribbon-cutting and video walk-through tour of the plant. Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, Senator’s John Boozman, and Tom Cotton, Representative Bruce Westerman, local officials joined Standard Lithium CEO Robert Mintak and LANXESS Corp. CEO and President Antonis Papadourakis for the virtual event.
Standard Lithium’s LiSTR Direct Lithium Extraction technology is the world’s most advanced, and environmentally friendly lithium recovery process. Standard Lithium has developed a proprietary process called “LiSTR” that uses a solid ceramic adsorbent material with a crystal lattice that is capable of selectively pulling lithium ions from a variety of brine streams. The process has a significantly smaller footprint than the conventional evaporation pond process, returns all barren brine to the source aquifer, is scalable, reduces the time required for Li extraction from months (with the evaporation ponds) to hours, and is capable of producing a high-purity LiCl solution for further processing in the battery industry.
