Rock Tech Lithium Inc of Vancouver, BC has announced the completion of a pilot test program and prototype production of battery grade lithium hydroxide monohydrate greater than 99.5% purity, in compliance with end-user electric vehicle lithium-ion battery production specifications. The process technology was pilot tested at Anzaplan of Germany to demonstrate product quality using the process design developed for Rock Tech by Wave International of Australia.
Don Stevens, Rock Tech’s Chief Technology Officer, said, “We are pleased with the initial test results from our batchwise pilot program in Germany. The results demonstrate the functionality of our process flowsheet to produce high quality, battery, battery grade lithium hydroxide and are key inputs into the design of our first planed commercial scale lithium hydroxide converter.”
