Li-Metal demonstrates electrolyte reconditioning process for carbonate-to-metal tech

Li-Metal, a developer of lithium metal anode and lithium metal production technologies, has demonstrated an electrolyte reconditioning process that it calls “a pivotal component supporting Li-Metal’s patented and modular carbonate-to-metal (C2M) technology for lithium metal production.”

The electrolyte reconditioning process plays a crucial role in the closed-loop operation of Li-Metal’s C2M technology, by facilitating the conversion of excess anolyte into catholyte. This closed-loop operation enhances operational efficiencies and minimizes waste.

Li-Metal says the successful completion of testing underscores the viability of its C2M technology, a key enabler and differentiator for the company’s ultra-thin lithium metal anode business. Li-Metal plans to demonstrate its C2M and electrolyte reconditioning technology at scale in Q1 2024, and expects to integrate its reconditioning process into its existing C2M pilot in Markham, Ontario.

“Li-Metal is excited to achieve another key technological milestone as we scale up our environmentally friendly C2M technology to support the production of high-performance, ultra-thin lithium metal anodes,” said Srini Godavarthy, CEO of Li-Metal. “Aligning with our mission to optimize resource utilization, our commitment to sustainability is highlighted through the demonstration of electrolyte reconditioning, enabling a closed-loop operation for our metal production process.”
