Standard Lithium completes fabrication of Phase 1, 2 of 'LiSTR' plant
Standard Lithium announced that the fabrication of Phases 1 & 2 of the Company's "LiSTR" direct lithium extraction Demonstration Plant are complete, and that the initial modules are currently being transported to the project location at Lanxess' South Plant facility in southern Arkansas . Standard Lithium also confirms that all the Site construction works are on-schedule, and the concrete slab and foundations required to locate the Demonstration Plant have been completed. Fabrication and initial QA/QC testing of Phases 1 & 2 of the Demonstration Plant have been completed and the modules have been separated, and prepared for overland shipment. The first modules are currently in transit and expected to arrive at the Site next week. All of the enabling works required at the project location at Lanxess' South Plant facility in southern Arkansas are on-schedule and the required site drainage, foundations and concrete slab required to locate the first-of-a-kind direct lithium extraction demonstration plant have been completed. A crane has been mobilised to the Site in order to move the modules from the flat-bed trucks to their final installed location. The Demonstration Plant is designed to continuously process an input tailbrine flow of 50 gallons per minute from the Lanxess South Plant, which is equivalent to an annual production of between 100-150 tonnes per annum Lithium Carbonate Equivalent.
