Our 80 years of experience producing superior quality lithium products is coupled with our pioneering work in developing and producing high-energy density cathodes. This makes Livent the preferred partner of major battery producers and automakers in creating groundbreaking products. With our patented Stabilized Lithium Metal Powder (SLMP®) material, today, we are continuing to pursue longer-lasting and more powerful, advanced lithium-ion and solid-state battery technologies, positioning Livent for the next generation of high-energy density batteries.
Beyond our innovation in lithium applications, Livent has also been a leader in lithium extraction and purification technology. Our brine resource in Argentina contains high concentrations of lithium with low levels of other contaminants, the result of a proprietary purification process that was first pioneered and commercialized by FMC. This process extracts lithium chloride from brine with greater than 95 percent purity. At the same time, it significantly reduces the overall well brine pumping-to-lithium carbonate production time, when compared to conventional solar evaporation methods.
