Charged EVs | Keliber verifies its ore for lithium hydroxide manufacturing


Keliber, a Finnish mining and battery chemical firm, has accomplished a pilot-scale check to confirm the conduct of its ore in any respect phases of the lithium hydroxide manufacturing course of.

In a 400-hour lengthy pilot-trial, ore from the corporate’s Rapasaari deposit in Finland was used to make lithium hydroxide at Metso Outotec’s demonstration plant in Pori, Finland. Keliber says the trial yielded a complete lithium restoration fee over 88%—which is increased than the corporate’s printed estimate in its Particular Feasibility Examine of March 2022.

“An analogous pilot-scale check program has beforehand been carried out utilizing ore from Syväjärvi [in Finland], the mine the place quarrying will begin first,” says the corporate.

“Now we have now verified that we are able to produce battery-grade lithium hydroxide from not solely the Syväjärvi ore but additionally by utilizing ore from our largest deposit in Rapasaari,” says Website Supervisor of Keliber’s Lithium Chemical Plant Sami Heikkinen.
