Standard Lithium Ltd of Vancouver, BC has announced that it is undertaking a pilot project in southern Arkansas to test a novel carbon capture technology. The project will be undertaken in collaboration with the owner of the technology, Aqualung Carbon Capture AS of Norway, and will be installed at a natural gas processing site in southern Arkansas, owned and operated by Mission Creek Resources LLC of The Woodlands, TX.
Dr Andy Robinson, Standard Lithium’s President, commented, “We are very pleased to be working in partnership with Aqualung and Mission Creek on this exciting project; the future of the lithium industry rests on being able to produce sustainable battery-quality chemicals with the lowest carbon footprint in jurisdictions where their production is wanted and needed. We feel that successful proof of this carbon capture technology in southern Arkansas may demonstrate another important technological step towards making the Gulf Coast region an industry-leading producer of sustainable lithium chemicals.”
The pilot plant will be located at Mission Creek’s Dorcheat Macedonia facility and will take a slipstream of the flue gas for processing through the Aqualung pilot unit. Manufacturing of the pilot unit is expected to begin before the end of this year and to be installed at the project site in the first half of 2022.
