This tech breakthrough could revolutionize lithium extraction

GREENBIZ | A research team is close to patenting a new technique to extract lithium from brine that could revolutionize the lithium extraction process and potentially cut the production costs of a key component of lithium-ion batteries.   


A team of researchers from Australia’s Monash University, Australia’s national science agency CSIRO, the University of Melbourne and the University of Texas at Austin have developed a new filtering technology to extract lithium ions from brine. This technology has a much higher recovery rate than current extraction techniques and cuts the extraction process time down to just a few hours from several months to years in current lithium extraction.
