The Sustainable Solution for Lithium Production
Addressing the global surge in lithium-ion battery demand for electric vehicles, LITHOS presents a cutting-edge, sustainable solution - our proprietary AcQUA(TM) process. This innovative method streamlines lithium extraction and refinement using advanced direct lithium extraction (DLE) from brines via specialized sorption technology. Our approach harnesses membrane filtration and ion exchange for efficient pretreatment, downstream refining, concentration, and conversion, enabling the creation of top-quality lithium battery materials. Additionally, we facilitate the reclamation of leaching acids from solid lithium mineral sources through our unique acid purification technology. With LITHOS, you gain an integrated system package, amalgamating synergistic technologies for maximum performance and efficiency in lithium processing.
Strategic Technology Partners
Together with LiTHOS, lithium manufacturers have the opportunity to leverage integrated technologies that are provided in inclusive system packages to ensure superior performance and efficiency. Our approach is rooted in a cooperative alliance with our clients, amalgamating our wealth of separation knowledge with their distinctive process insights to establish all-encompassing solutions that result in significant value creation. From the initial stages of laboratory testing to field trialing and demonstration, we assist our clients in identifying the unique characteristics of their lithium brines and in customizing DLE process solutions that guarantee optimized productivity and efficiency.

1. INDUSTRIAL SCALE PRE-TREATMENT CONTROLS PRODUCTION
2. ELIMINATES EVAPORATION PONDS:
Economics : The primary step which can substantially improve both CAPEX and OPEX.
Volume : How much brine fluid can be extracted and run through the production facility.
Efficiency : Pre-treatment is where 60% of the resource is lost & where massive water consumption occurs.
Simplicity : The ‘cleaner’ the input brine, the simpler the DLE solution: less chemicals - better recovery.
