Standard Lithium Commissions Saltworks for Design & Build of Selective Crystallisation Portion of Its Pilot Plant

Del

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Standard Lithium Ltd. ("Standard Lithium" or the "Company") (TSXV:SLL) (FRA:S5L) is pleased to announce that it has commissioned Saltworks Technologies Inc. ("Saltworks") to design and build a novel, selective crystallisation plant to make battery-grade lithium carbonate in a continuous process.  The feedstock to the crystallisation plant will be the high-purity lithium solution produced by the full-scale Selective Extraction Pilot Plant previously announced by the Company on 26th March 2018.  The crystallisation plant will be intelligently automated and will utilise machine-learning to optimise the crystallisation conditions.  The selective crystallisation plant will be designed, built and tested in Vancouver, BC, and will then be deployed at the Company's Pilot Plant location in El Dorado, Arkansas.  This novel, continuous selective crystallisation plant is based on work conducted by Professor Jason Hein, a member of Standard Lithium's Technical Advisory Committee, that has been demonstrated at bench scale to result in reproducible and high purity lithium carbonate crystallisation.

Dr. Andy Robinson, COO and President of Standard Lithium commented "We're extremely pleased to announce this agreement with Saltworks; we've been very impressed with the quality and technical sophistication of their team and the products that they design and manufacture.  Standard Lithium is taking a parallel and risk-managed approach at our Pilot-scale facility with respect to our final crystallisation stage; our intention is to 'future proof' our final production options.  In addition to our in-house technology testing, we will be sending high-purity lithium solutions to OEMs in order that they can use traditional, proven technologies to demonstrate production of lithium carbonate and hydroxide; however, we also wish to test whether modern approaches can provide a more efficient solution to making very high purity lithium carbonate."

Saltworks CEO Benjamin Sparrow commented that, "Lithium mining is water mining.  Our team is very excited to provide Standard Lithium with an advanced water technology edge, leveraging our experience while working with their world class team."
