Extraction of Lithium from Spodumene - Invent Penn State

Technology Summary. The current process of lithium extraction requires roasting the spodumene at a temperature of 1050 C to transform the natural crystalline form of spodumene a to form ß which can be leached at a high temperature. This is a costly, energy-extensive process. The disclosed innovation offers a way to extract the lithium from ...

Hard Rock Lithium Processing - SGS

Spodumene has a theoretical Li2O content of 8.03%. Due to its high lithium content, spodumene is considered the most important lithium ore mineral. A typical run of mine ore can contain 1-2% Li 2 O, while a typical spodumene concentrate suitable for lithium carbonate production contains 6-7% Li 2 O (75% - 87% spodumene). Higher grade concentrates

Lithium Mining Processing Equipment Flow Chart

Lithium is historically known to be produced from two sources: brines and hard rock mining. Lithium produced from brines is a cost-efficient process. Also, Lithium is processed from brine, spodumene, and clay. Salar brines are underground reservoirs that contain high concentrations of dissolved salts, such as lithium, potassium, and sodium.
