KBR announced it has signed an alliance agreement with GeoLith SAS to offer its advanced Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technology, Li-Capt. This technology enables zero-emission lithium extraction from untapped sources, like geothermal and oil well brines.     

Zero-Emission Lithium

Under the terms of the agreement, KBR will serve as the exclusive global licensor of GeoLith's Li-Capt technology, which produces pure lithium concentrate and is adaptable to various brine compositions and extraction sources. This technology, in combination with KBR's existing suite of battery material technologies including PureLiSM, a high purity lithium production technology, provides clients with an end-to-end solution to produce battery-grade lithium carbonate or lithium hydroxide monohydrate, essential components for advanced batteries in electric vehicles, from lithium brine feedstock.

KBR's process knowledge for the recovery and purification of critical minerals stems from over seven decades of experience in evaporation and crystallization technologies, all designed to comply with evolving environmental regulations.
