International 'Metals company, the solution of the problem is about the knowledge of the technology in the development of salt lake lithium resources generate $84 billion in revenue, lithium production speed will be faster, the cost will be lower.
At present, the production of lithium requires 18 to 24 months of exposure to evaporation. After all the other elements in the lithium mine are extracted, only lithium is left, and the mining is completed.The biggest problem is that it is very difficult to expand lithium production, and thousands of evaporation ponds need to be built.
IBAT's new technology is the inverse of the traditional method, which removes the evaporation pond from the entire production process of lithium.The technology will reduce the extraction time to 24 hours.Even better, its lithium extraction rate will rise from 40 per cent to 90 per cent."Our technology can directly extract the lithium, and the core of the technology -- Selective Absorption -- is the only viable way of doing business," says John burba.
The traditional way is to remove other elements from the lithium, which can be extracted directly from the lithium.
According to burba, the core idea of the technology is to extract lithium based on a continuous basis.The technology collects lithium elements in the liquid salt water and ignores other impurities and eventually gets diluted lithium chloride.The whole process takes 24 hours, which means people can say goodbye to the traditional 18-24 month extraction cycle.This is certainly a change in the technology of lithium extraction.Burba said the new technology will greatly meet the demand for lithium ion battery production.
