The full-scale Pilot Plant is comprised of two halves, both based on Standard Lithium’s proprietary technology, with the company’s partners Zeton Inc. designing and building the Lithium Extraction Pilot Plant and Saltworks Technologies Inc. designing and fabricating the Lithium Carbonate Crystallisation Pilot Plant.
“We have all been very pleasantly surprised by these highly positive results from our prototype pilot, established so quickly after starting up the equipment,” Standard Lithium President and COO Dr. Andy Robinson stated in the news release. “Standard’s technical team and our partners at Saltworks are now going through the rigorous process of optimising the operation of the equipment and adding additional process cycles and washing technology so that we can improve the purity of the final lithium carbonate product even further. They are also gathering key data to allow us to commence the design for the larger scale crystallisation pilot plant that will be deployed to our project site in southern Arkansas, USA.”
