Livista Energy to Partner with Technip Energies to Deliver its First Lithium Refinery in Europe
06.17.2023 By News - NEWS

June 17, 2023 [Livista]- Livista’s refinery will initially produce 40,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) of battery grade lithium products [30,000 tpa of li-hydroxide and 10,000 tpa of li-Carbonate (LCE)], or enough to supply the battery needs of [c]850,000 electric vehicles, with potential to double production capacity to meet growing EV demand and requirements for high-grade, locally refined lithium chemicals.


With our first lithium refinery plant planned to start production in 2026, Livista will contribute to filling a critical gap in Europe’s electric vehicle and battery supply chain. Currently virtually all lithium refining is performed in Asia. This will bring both energy independence and security to Europe.


Livista refineries will enable OEMs and battery manufactures to comply with EU Critical Raw Material Act objectives, which mandates that all batteries produced in Europe contain a minimum percentage of lithium battery grade product produced locally by 2030. This will represent a key driver in the region’s sustainability efforts in the race to European net zero emission targets, lowering dependency on imported materials and helping drive circular economy.
