Mitigating Emissions

We are designing our Tennessee Lithium operation so the air quality for our neighbors is safe and monitored.

We plan to maintain emissions within federal, state, and local guidelines and within our permit requirements by utilizing robust emissions-control equipment and air scrubbers that reduce the amount of air contaminants. Our engineers also are planning for the use of systems that will monitor our project’s air emissions.

Our facility is being designed to utilize the innovative Metso leaching technology, which primarily uses pressure and steam to create lithium hydroxide. This process is more sustainable and has fewer air emissions than the traditional acid roasting process – the most widely used lithium extraction method today. And we are planning to use high-efficiency boilers for steam generation, while minimizing the number of boilers required to run our processes, further improving our emissions profile.
