A PROPRIETARY SYSTEM
The L1X™ System is our proprietary nano SEPARATION and EXTRACTION process that captures 98%+ of the available lithium with ZERO external water consumption. Clean. Efficient. Sustainable.
THIS IS CLEAN MINING
L1X™ captures 98%+ of the lithium from the source feedstock and uses ZERO EXTERNAL WATER.
This is a picture from one of our fully contained systems of separation and extraction membranes. This eliminates the environmental damage caused by evaporation ponds and soar past the significant deficiencies and limitations found in filtration systems such as RO.
Once isolated the pure lithium brine is rapidly concentrate using less than $100 of energy per tonne of lithium (LCE) output.
ZERO WATER WITH L1X
L1X Lithium™: ZERO external water consumption is the world's first true path to profitable and sustainable lithium mining.
Effective at high elevation, the low energy requirements of L1X Lithium™ front end nano separation, lithium isolation and pre-output rapid concentration, makes this an efficient and complete path to lithium production versus absorption material with nano filtration systems.
L1X™ lithium facilities are custom engineered to meet the needs of a dynamic environment: at L1X we design each system based on the brine content, to optimize the extraction and production process capturing 98%+ from the source feedstock and delivering battery grade lithium output.
More Elements: to capture other elements from the brine, we add extraction loops to our process flow.
DEMONSTRATION FACILITY: our brine production laucnh will be in Argentina scheduled to process 6000 M3 of brine per day producing approximately 2500 metric tonnes (LCE )per year.
FULL EXTRACTION FACILITY: starts at 75,000+ M3 per day or 30,000 metric tonnes (LCE) per year with direct production to battery grade lithium.
All projects are supported by our full service, globally experienced professional (P.Eng) engineering team.
L1X™: the fundamental deliverables for full lithium production
ZERO external water consumption
Bi-product from processing is Ultra-Pure Water (UPW)
Eliminates operational land, water and air pollution risk
Almost eliminates the balance sheet site-risk liability cost
Total Extraction and concentration
optimal saturation (250,000 PPM to 400,000 PPM)
or all the way to crystallization
$100 of energy used at the concentration stage per metric tonne of output LCE. (approx.)
98%+ of the available lithium is captured and processed
Expedites production day-one
Battery grade Output: Lithium Chloride, Carbonate or Hydroxide
Lower OpEx and CapEx than traditional methods
Evaporation ponds are no longer tolerated.
Other systems do not offer an efficient path to production.
DLE + R/O alone is NOT ESG compliant.
