However, the mining and refining of lithium from hard rocks, the current source of lithium, produces a significant amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

That's why Vulcan Energy is focusing on building the world's first zero-carbon lithium project using modern extraction techniques. The company holds a very large licence package covering an area of more than 1,000 sq. km, with three exploration permits granted and several applications. The complete project is sufficient to feed more than 40 million electric vehicles, as per the company’s latest update on 4 May.

Vulcan Achievements in April:

Vulcan achieved several milestones concerning its lithium project during the last one month.

During mid-April, the company unveiled that the Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) pilot plant located in the Upper Rhine Valley started production. The plant is designed to validate extraction of lithium from live geothermal brine.

Managing Director, Dr. Francis Wedin had highlighted this as a critical step towards the company’s strategy of producing lithium hydroxide using its unique Zero Carbon Lithium™ process.

Later, the company announced plans to spin-off non-core Scandinavian assets into a new entity, named Kuniko. The objective is to bring more focus to the company's core Zero Carbon Lithium® project.
