Industry Disruptive Technology for the Lithium Sector
Lepidico is the 100% owner and developer of the L-Max® technology, a proprietary process which has the potential to commercially extract lithium and other valuable by-products from unconventional sources.
Traditionally lithium is extracted from brines or hard rock spodumene. However there also exists a third potential source of lithium in the form of Li-rich micas such as lepidolite and zinnwaldite. These minerals are commonly found, but have been overlooked as a source of lithium because no commercial extract process has existed for lithium recovery. Enter L-Max®.
Along with the L-Max® technology, Lepidico has acquired an attractive portfolio of assets and is actively assessing other opportunities which may be amenable for L-Max® deployment.
Lepidico’s aim is to commercialise the L-Max® technology and become a producer of lithium by 2019.
