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."

Industry stakeholders partner on blockchain based margin and collateral solution19.6.2018 13:00Pressemelding

AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands, BRUSSELS, Belgium, LONDON and STOCKHOLM, Sweden, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ABN AMRO Clearing, EuroCCP, Euroclear and Nasdaq have completed a joint proof of concept to make the use of securities more efficient when used to cover margin calls, including after business hours, using blockchain, or distributed ledger technology (DLT). This solution addresses significant business challenges and inefficiencies related to the current provision of collateral to Central Counterparties (CCPs) and has demonstrated that a shared, resilient network can be built between collateral givers, collateral takers and intermediaries. The inefficiencies of collateral processing have been heightened as a result of recent market changes such as extended trading hours by stock exchanges and the requirement to centrally clear derivatives traded bilaterally (OTC) under the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR). Today, a CCP margin call typically needs to be covered by
