SYSTEM OVERVIEW

L1X is the WORLD'S FIRST in CLEAN SOURCED LITHIUM

SEPARATION AND EXTRACTION AT WORK

Invented here in Canada and leveraging over 25 years of industry leading research, design and commercialization - L1X Corp worked to design a NANO SEPARATION & NANO-EXTRACTION process that isolates and efficiently extracts LITHIUM from brine salars and clay.

KEY DELIVERBALES...ZERO external water consumption for brine, NO pollution, battery grade lithium output. 

To capture other elements from the source brine, we simply add more extraction loops in our continuous feed system.

THE L1X PROCESS 

Separation/ DLE

Our own nano filtration process and nano-separation technology captures lithium and other valuable salts or elements. Ultra Pure Water (UPW is medical grade water) is extracted from the brine itself which may be used in our process flow, sold as a valuable commodity to re-injected. 

Extraction

Staged extraction and concentration cycles isolate and efficiently extract the lithium

Supplementary Extraction

Other VALUABLE salts or element(s) are efficiently isolated and captured. 

Rapid & Efficient Concentration - better than RO

The L1X Lithium system has another proprietary application for the concentration stage which is significantly more cost efficient that any thermal, crystallizer, evaporator including RO water recovery technology.

L1X delivers full water recovery and ZERO external water consumption.

Battery Grade Output 

The L1X Lithium system is optimized for the most efficient path to production output of lithium carbonate, chloride and hydroxide. 

Zero External Water Outflow

Re-use/ inject back into the basin; or sell the UPW captured from the brine itself resulting in a net-positive water impact.  

MORE PROFIT in CLEAN SOURCED LITHIUM™  

OpEx: Efficient

Expensive thermal evaporators or crystallizers are not required.  Operating under a vacuum, and at 70.C our OpEx is low and our uptime is exceptional. Since our processing is efficient and continuous without the need for resins, chemicals or consumables, our OpEx is cheaper than tradition lithium extraction processes for both brine and clay.

CapEx: Lower Cost

The total price of a full production evaporation pond system is more expensive than our clean technology solution.  This also does NOT include the evaporation ponds cost to the environmental air, land and water pollution and consumption. 
 

Revenues: 100% increase compared to evaporation pond technology

Since our costs are lower and we can also capture approximately 98%+ of the lithium from source, we are doubling the production value, reducing time-to-market output by years for a remarkable return on investment.
