Resource Recovery and Lithium

Extracting lithium and other high-demand, valuable resources from brine deposits require advanced and highly efficient metal recovery technologies. Traditional methods have relied on inefficient solar evaporation ponds to concentrate lithium — requiring enormous areas of land and great patience given that processing times can take years.

 

Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) and production is a breakthrough process that yields lithium with far greater efficiency through an integrated flowsheet that includes absorption, ion exchange, solvent extraction, and membranes.

 

Gradiant offers solutions that enhance the sustainable production of battery-grade lithium compounds using our RO Infinity (ROI) with CFRO, and Carrier Gas Extraction (CGE) technologies, powered by SmartOps digital solutions – an integrated platform for performance optimization and asset management. 

 

These solutions enable unprecedented performance compared to conventional technologies:

 

  • High levels of lithium concentration in a fraction of the time
  • Reduced water and carbon footprints
  • Lower capital and operational costs
  • Flexibility to be integrated into existing lithium extraction and production sites
  • Opportunity to open untapped lithium production regions previously not viable

 

Beyond lithium, Gradiant technologies are proven commercially in the sustainable production and recovery of other valuable metals, including nickel, cobalt, graphite, and uranium. Gradiant also offers solutions for IPA recovery in the semiconductor industry.
