Lithium Test Center

Advance your lithium project with our in-house lithium mini-refineries and lithium processing experts

Saltworks' Lithium Test Center combines expertise and industry-leading technology to provide innovative solutions for processing lithium chloride into battery-grade outputs. The Center is dedicated to de-risking lithium processing projects and accelerating full-scale implementation.

Our Mission: Accelerating Lithium Projects 

Saltworks offers chemical, membrane, and thermal technologies—discrete units or comprehensive systems, as needed—for the lithium industry. We focus on helping our clients to concentrate, refine, and convert lithium brines, including direct lithium extraction (DLE) eluents, to battery-grade lithium solids, including hydroxide and carbonate.

The mission of the Lithium Test Center is to enable the clean energy transition by fast-tracking projects that produce high-grade lithium solids. We put our clients on the path to optimizing the economics and output purity of their lithium projects.

Increasing Access to Expertise and Technology

The Lithium Test Center is located at Saltworks’ headquarters, where we also build our full-scale solutions.

The Center is staffed by scientists and engineers with deep lithium refining expertise and features two in-house mini-refineries. We move quickly, using our experience and suite of pilot assets to test and demonstrate the performance of our full-scale solutions.

At the Center, we optimize process flow diagrams, mass balances, and economic models, and provide upfront engineering and pilot testing—all to provide essential de-risking for your project
