Summit Nanotech innovates core technologies to accelerate the global transition to clean energy.

The Lithium Mine of the Future

Summit Nanotech's award winning denaLi™ direct lithium extraction (DLE) technology is a line of extraction processes created to produce high quality lithium chloride, lithium carbonate and/or lithium hydroxide from natural lithium resources. This technology addresses critical supply and sustainability issues to meet the surge in lithium demand due to the increased pace of adoption of electric vehicles and renewable energy.


The denaLi™ DLE technology doubles yield, reduces GHG emissions, uses no fresh water, minimizes the use of chemicals, and cuts chemical waste by 90% compared to traditional processes, surpassing all global ESG standards. In addition to this, denaLi™ DLE also has the capacity to recover lithium from lithium-ion battery recycling streams contributing to the circular economy of the future.

Summit Nanotech Corporation is pleased to announce that Amanda Hall, CEO, and Founder of Summit Nanotech is the $1 Million grand prize winner of the Women in Cleantech Challenge. After a rigorous evaluation process by a jury of experts, Amanda Hall was named the winner for achieving the most progress during the three-year Challenge and having the greatest market impact. The $1-million grand prize will further commercialize and grow Summit Nanotech.


Summit Nanotech is developing technology to tackle the world's most daunting energy and environmental challenges. Since 2018, Summit Nanotech has grown from one to 26 employees, filed three patents, and has 12 active customers in 5 countries. 


The Women in Cleantech Challenge was funded by NRCan to address the lack of representation in a sector where only 16 percent of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are owned by women.


"Your work puts Canada’s climate innovation economy at the forefront at a time when we most need it, all while blazing the way for other incredibly talented women engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs.  We are so proud to have worked with each of you over the past three years and look forward to the impact that you will make as you scale your companies,” said Yung Wu, CEO of MaRS.


“The Women in Cleantech Challenge doesn’t just seek to level the playing field for women; it seeks to inspire a new generation of women entrepreneurs and leaders to build our clean energy future,” said the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources. “Diversity of thought is critical to innovation, and that’s why supporting more women entrepreneurs is more important than ever. Congratulations to Amanda Hall, and to all the finalists who are building Canada’s clean energy future.”
