Summit Nanotech Receives Funding and Support from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC)

"OTTAWA, ON, July 14, 2020 – In partnership with accelerators across Canada, Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) today announced funding for 17 Canadian start-ups that are pushing the boundaries of technology to develop sustainable solutions that will drive our economy forward. 

The entrepreneurs receiving funding show the breadth and variety of Canadian business developing cleantech solutions. These small businesses are developing technologies to power electric vehicles and to navigate autonomous cars. They are using drones to plant trees and data to improve fish farms. They enable heavy-duty vehicles to run on hydrogen, and they convert carbon dioxide into high-value fuels. They are replacing agrochemicals and inventing active compostable packaging. They are deploying nanotechnology, robotics, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, and human ingenuity. "

"Lithium Chile Signs Agreement with Summit Nanotech to Advance Green Lithium Extraction"

Lithium Chile Inc. (TSXV:LITH) (“Lithium Chile” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Summit Nanotech Corporation for the advancement of their green lithium extraction technology in Chile. Summit Nanotech has developed a patent pending extraction process that allows for the rapid production of lithium from natural brine sources. Its technology is state of the art and shows great promise for the economical production of lithium while significantly reducing the overall environmental impact of lithium mining. The collaboration will set new standards for responsible lithium production, which is growing more important given the global rise in demand for lithium ion batteries for renewable energy and electric vehicles

"Breakthrough technique could produce lithium in hours"

"New extraction technologies promise to curb the use of water and energy in lithium production, and to potentially open up new sources of supply, including petroleum wastewater and geothermal brines, according to BNEF. Companies including Eramet SA, Rincon Ltd. and Summit Nanotech Corp. are among others who’re developing nano-filtration technologies."

"New tech aims to extract lithium for electric car batteries from oilfield waste"

"Lithium — a component of electric vehicle batteries — is a growing market, expected to near $100 billion by some estimates in the next decade.

Mining the metal can come at a high environmental cost, so some Alberta companies are developing greener extraction methods by partnering with an unlikely ally — the oil and gas industry.

"Working with the oil and gas industry we can take advantage of the infrastructure already existing in Alberta," said Amanda Hall, president of Summit Nanotech.

The infrastructure isn't the only advantage. The Leduc Formation, the source of Alberta's first big oil boom, is also a rich lithium deposit. There are about 3.6 million tonnes of lithium in the province, according to the Canadian Lithium Association."

Calgary, Alberta / TheNewswire / May 8, 2018 – Voyageur Minerals Ltd . ("VM" or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:VM) is pleased to announce that it has signed a non-binding letter of intent (“LOI”) with Summit Nanotech Corporation (“SNC”), to develop proprietary processing technology for the production of high-purity lithium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium carbonate, calcium carbonate and sodium carbonate from mineral brine waters. The technology is also envisioned to employ innovative carbon capture technology allowing VM to potentially capture CO 2 from the atmosphere to be used in the processing.

One of VM’s goals is to create efficient, environmentally friendly mining projects with reduced carbon foot prints. In addition, VM will be developing this technology for the production of High Purity Barium (HPB) products from its Frances Creek barite project.
