The need

Heavy investment in Europe in downstream activities in the lithium battery value chain has resulted in a critical shortfall in sustainably-sourced raw materials, including battery grade lithium chemicals.

The solution

The San José Lithium Project represents Europe's 2nd largest hard rock lithium deposit, with a fully integrated lithium chemical conversion plant on site. The mineral is completely processed in the adjacent site until converted into lithium hydroxide, an essential component in the manufacture of rechargeable ion-lithium batteries, particularly those used in electric vehicles.

The value proposition

  • Battery grade chemicals produced in Europe using sustainable processing techniques.
  • Strategically located in southern Spain for the European market.
  • Contributes 20,000ktpa (kilo-tonnes per annum) of battery grade lithium chemicals to the European market.

Infinity Lithium hails production of battery grade chemicals from San José

Infinity Lithium Corporation Ltd's Ryan Parkin tells Proactive's Andrew Scott they've produced battery-grade lithium chemicals during metallurgical test-work on material from the San José lithium project in Spain. By generating chemicals like lithium hydroxide and lithium carbonate, Infinity continues to advance its multi-pronged test-work program on San José, which is poised to supply Europe’s battery industry.
