The Roche based company, British Lithium, are the first company to discover a sizable lithium deposit in the UK.
Funded by Innovate UK, the pilot plant has taken just seven months to design and build and uses patented technology in a sustainable production process.
The pilot plant design is based on four years’ intensive research and development and is the latest milestone in British Lithium’s progress towards full operational status. All UK car manufacturing will convert to electric vehicles by 2030 and lithium carbonate is a key component in the batteries required to power them.
