Nemaska Lithium Inc. recently announced that it has commenced the qualification of its high purity lithium hydroxide monohydrate products with over 20 customers worldwide. The Corporation started shipping samples within 60 days of setting up drying and bagging equipment at its Shawinigan Phase 1 demonstration plant.
Sample sizes vary from 450 g to 350 kg, and customers’ requests range from battery manufacturers to cathode manufacturers, to industrial grease users, besides its current offtake customers, which include Johnson Matthey, LG Chemicals, and Northvolt.
We have just achieved a major milestone in our vertically integrated project from mine to plant. This first delivery, completed in less time than expected, confirms our ability to produce superior quality battery grade lithium hydroxide from our Shawinigan Phase 1 plant facility. I want to take this opportunity to commend the efforts of our employees in delivering such a high-quality product.
Guy Bourassa, President and Chief Executive Officer, Nemaska Lithium.
