History

Founded in 2018, Summit Nanotech addresses the challenges associated with securing a sustainable lithium supply that meets the global demand required for energy transition.

We need lithium. The demand for high-powered and lightweight batteries is needed for the rise of electric vehicles, energy storage, and mobile phones. Our technology reduces the costs required to produce lithium so that everyone can participate in a greener economy.
