E3 Lithium (ETL) has overseen the successful manufacture of its first quantity of continuously produced, commercial scale sorbent.

Sorbent is critical to the success and commercialization of E3 Lithium’s ion-exchange DLE technology.

E3 Lithium partnered with a third-party equipment design and manufacturer to make this possible by using the manufacturer’s in-house development equipment to produce an initial 20 kgs of E3’s proprietary sorbent in a single continuous run.

Before the feat of producing this commercial quantity, E3’s development team produced in-house sorbent in quantities less than a kilogram to support internal test work.

This production was geared toward authenticating the shift from small-scale batch production in the lab to continuous commercial-scale output, achieving successful results.

E3 has analyzed the sorbent produced from this continuous scale production equipment against the batch produced in-house and found the new product to have equal, if not better, performance with rapid and high lithium recovery rates of more than 97 per cent.

This 20 kg test run demonstrated that large-scale production is possible using this equipment and positions E3 to achieve its goals.

These goals include having the vendor produce several tonnes of sorbent for use in E3’s field pilot project and designing the equipment to be implemented in the commercial processing facility as part of E3’s Clearwater Project.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of our first commercial production of sorbent and its high lithium recovery rates,” noted Chris Doornbos, President and CEO of E3.

“This commercially-produced sorbent provides confidence in the viability of scaling up E3’s production to deliver the larger volumes of high-quality sorbent needed for commercial operations,” he added.

E3 Lithium is a development company with total of 24.3 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) inferred mineral resources in Alberta.

E3 Lithium Ltd. opened trading at $2.22.
