Standard Lithium Files Non-Provisional US & International Patent Applications for Its Lithium Extraction Technology
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Standard Lithium Ltd. (“Standard Lithium” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SLL) (OTC-Nasdaq Intl. Designation: STLHF) (FRA: S5L), announced that the Company has filed a patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office covering the Company’s novel process for the recovery of Lithium from brine. Concurrently, an application was also filed under the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) extending Standard Lithium’s entitlement to seek patent protection for this invention in member states to the PCT (which includes all important industrialized markets). Both the U.S. and PCT patent applications claim priority out of the Company’s previously filed U.S. provisional application.
The U.S. and PCT patent applications cover technology the Company and its Scientific Advisory Team have developed. As previously reported, a lithium extraction Mini-Pilot Plant utilizing the Company’s proprietary process has demonstrated that lithium can be selectively extracted from raw brine (i.e. with no pre-treatment other than pH adjustment); can be converted into a concentrated and substantially purified (compared to the feed brine) lithium chloride solution; that the lithium-loaded sorbent material can be continuously regenerated and recycled to the extraction stage; and that overall lithium extraction efficiencies of over 90% can be achieved.
The PCT is an international patent law treaty, which provides a unified procedure for fixing a window to preserve the Company’s right to elect national or regional patent treatment in each of the PCT member states. There are currently 152 member countries adhering to the PCT; thus, enabling near-global patent coverage through successful patent prosecution, including in the U.S., Japan, South Korea, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China, Brazil, Russia, India, and the countries subscribing to the European Patent Office.

BARCELONA, Spain, March 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- What: eSilicon, a leading provider of FinFET-class ASICs, market-specific IP platforms and advanced 2.5D packaging solutions, with the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain are presenting two papers on advanced floor planning techniques at DATE 2019, Florence, Italy. Who: Alex Vidal-Obiols, Jordi Cortadella, Jordi Petit, Department of Computer Science, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Marc Galceran-Oms, Ferran Martorell, eSilicon EMEA, Barcelona, Spain. RTL-Aware Dataflow-Driven Macro Placement This paper proposes a novel multi-level approach for macro placement of complex designs dominated by macro blocks, typically memories. Using the hierarchy tree, the netlist is divided into blocks containing macros and standard cells and their dataflow affinity is inferred considering the latency and flow width of their interaction. This information, known by the RTL designer, is often lost during physical synthesis. The la
