The focus of this thesis project has been on recovering lithium from its mineral ores, primarily being from spodumene. The general process for recovering lithium has been to begin with a roast to improve the dissolution rate of lithium ions. This occurs by expanding the crystal structure from an alpha to beta-spodumene form. However, this initial roast contributes a significant energy expense in processing the ore. This project has aimed at finding an alternative, less expensive pre… 

A Novel Vacuum Aluminothermic Reduction Lithium Process

A novel vacuum aluminothermic reduction lithium process was developed in present work which used lithium carbonate, alumina and calcium oxide as raw material. The process mainly contained three

Minero-metallurgical processes for lithium recovery from pegmatitic ores = Processos minero-metalúrgicos para a recuperação de lítio de minérios pegmatíticos

With the expected increase of lithium demand in the forthcoming years, an efficient management of all the available resources is necessary. Rock minerals like pegmatites are important primary sources

The Separation and Recovery of Nickel and Lithium from the Sulfate Leach Liquor of Spent Lithium Ion Batteries using PC-88A

The present paper deals with the extractive separation and selective recovery of nickel and lithium from the sulfate leachate of cathode scrap generated during the manufacture of LIBs. The conditions
