This week’s webinar by IGC.events will present a presentation by Elif Kaymakci of EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG titled: “Lithium for batteries from geothermal waters in Germany – The joint UnLimited project.”
- Day: Friday May 21, 2021
- Time: 14:00 CEST
The co-production of lithium from deep geothermal plants is currently being discussed worldwide and has already been implemented locally in a pilot manner. Demand for lithium is growing rapidly, especially in the field of electro-mobility. In Germany, high lithium concentrations of up to 200 mg/l are measured in hot thermal brines in the Upper Rhine Graben (ORG) and North German Basin (NGB). The potential is therefore promising, and this extraction technology can be a steppingstone in the establishment of a domestic value chain for lithium.
