Our commitment to the planet is at the heart of our goal to become one of the world’s most sustainable producers of lithium hydroxide.

We’re proud of the steps we’re taking to minimize the impact of our operations on the environment – as well as our mission to support the electrification of transportation, global decarbonization, and American energy security.

We’re honored to celebrate our planet on Earth Day!

What is spodumene?

Spodumene is a mineral that we plan to extract from other locations in our global portfolio before processing it into lithium hydroxide at Tennessee Lithium for U.S. battery manufacturers. Spodumene has one of the highest lithium contents among all known minerals and is a proven feed source for battery materials.

Why is made-in-America lithium hydroxide important?

We believe the domestic production of lithium hydroxide is vitally important to U.S. energy security and the growing effort to a build robust, American-made supply chain for electric vehicle (EV) and battery manufacturers.

The demand for lithium is soaring, largely because of the growing demand for EVs. Every EV requires a battery, and every battery needs lithium. Lithium equips batteries with a long lifespan, a high-power capacity, and a unique ability to charge quickly – all while requiring less maintenance than traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.

However, not enough lithium hydroxide – or battery-grade lithium – is produced in the U.S. or globally to power the electrification of transportation. Currently, China produces approximately 80% of the world’s supply of lithium hydroxide, while the U.S. produces only 2%.

Our proposed Tennessee Lithium project would more than double the current American production capacity, adding approximately 30,000 metric tons of lithium hydroxide per year to the U.S. market.

We are proud to collaborate with Metso to design our planned Carolina Lithium and Tennessee Lithium projects with the innovative pressure leach technology for responsible lithium hydroxide production. Using soda ash, lime, and steam, this process eliminates the use of acid-roasting for a sodium-sulfate-free method for refining battery-grade lithium. We believe the entire conversion process is environmentally sustainable and safer for employees and our communities than conventional spodumene-to-hydroxide conversion methods. ... See MoreSee Less

How will Tennessee Lithium protect streams and local waterways?

Responsible water management is integral to our plans for developing Tennessee Lithium as one of the world's most sustainable projects of its kind. The project is being designed as a manufacturing facility to convert lithium resources to lithium hydroxide. We do not plan to have any direct contact with the water table, rivers, or streams, nor directly impact the watershed or surrounding wells through our operation.

Our project design includes sending processed water to Etowah Utilities. Similar to other industrial and manufacturing operations, our use and processing of water are regulated, and we are committed to full compliance with our permits and environmental responsibility in our operations.
