WELCOME TO THE LITHIUM MINE OF THE FUTURE

denaLiDLE TECHNOLOGY

 

 

 

 

Summit has developed a novel sorbent-based direct lithium extraction ("DLE") technology, denaLi™ to accelerate the global transition to clean energy. 

The denaLi™ DLE technology is designed to double yield, reduce GHG emissions, minimize the use of reagents and fresh water, and materially reduce waste compared to traditional methods.

We intended to set the bar high.

Summit's award-winning denaLi™ DLE technology is designed with three critical operations standards. Meeting these standards is our highest priority.

denaLi™ C lithium carbonate

denaLi™ B lithium chloride

denaLi™ H lithium hydroxide

To Set the Benchmark for Environmental Performance 

STANDARD #1

  • Minimal freshwater use

  • 20x reduction in land-use area

  • Low GHG emissions*

  • 90%+ less waste

*compared to industrial average

To Provide Reliable, Consistent Products

STANDARD #2

  • Produce high purity lithium carbonate or lithium hydroxide from a wide-range of complex feedstocks

  • Modular, plug-and-play automated processes

  • Rapid processing time (less than 24-hours)

  • Fully customized processing technology (e.g., flow-rate, impurity removal, re-injection strategy)

STANDARD #3

To Transform Mining Economics

  • Less OPEX: low reagent use; long material lifespan

  • Less CAPEX: modular, efficient engineering design

  • Higher PROFIT margins: over 80% yield; battery-grade products

“We are building the mine of the future by setting new standards for lithium extraction today.”
