New lithium projects take time to reach battery-grade quality, conference hears

New entrants to the lithium production industry will take time to produce lithium compounds of battery-grade quality and may face challenges and delays along the road, an industry conference in Germany heard last week.

The point was made by Stefan Debruyne of Chilean lithium miner Sociedad Quimica y Minera (SQM) during the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference (AACB) in Mainz on Wednesday June 15.
