  • Sustainable Lithium for a Greener Future

    At Lithium Harvest, our focus on sustainability drives us to play a crucial role in the green energy transition by extracting lithium from oilfield wastewater. Our proprietary and patented technology converts waste into a valuable resource, enabling the quick and cost-effective production of high-quality, battery-grade lithium compounds with minimal environmental impact. Our sustainable approach offers several advantages over traditional methods:

    • Our technology utilizes existing water sources, eliminating the need to search for new water sources and reducing project development time and capital expenditure.
    • In addition to producing valuable lithium compounds, our extraction process cleans the wastewater, making it more sustainable to dispose of or repurpose.
    • Our lithium compounds have the lowest greenhouse gas emissions, avoiding the need for offsetting and ensuring a truly green product.
    • Unlike traditional lithium production, our process does not harm habitats, biodiversity, indigenous populations, or historical or religious sites or require the removal of vegetation and trees.
    • We employ minimal water compared to traditional methods, reducing water usage and addressing water scarcity concerns.

    When comparing Lithium Harvest's sustainable extraction approach to traditional mining methods, the advantages are evident:

    • Up to 99% smaller footprint, minimizing land use and preserving habitats.
    • Up to 96% lower water consumption, addressing water scarcity concerns.
    • More than 90% of water is recycled, reducing the strain on freshwater resources.
    • Over 95% lithium extraction, ensuring efficient resource utilization.
    • Up to 70% lower capital expenditure (CapEx), making our process more cost-effective.
    • Up to 35% lower operational expenditure (OpEx), enhancing financial sustainability.
    • Achieving a neutral CO2 footprint supports the transition to a low-carbon future.

    Our sustainable lithium extraction sets us apart from conventional lithium mining, which is associated with environmental concerns such as water pollution, increased carbon dioxide emissions, water depletion, and the destruction of fertile land. We prioritize building a more sustainable future through our smaller operating footprint, green separation and extraction of lithium resources, and significantly quicker production timelines than traditional methods.

    Additionally, our innovative approach addresses the problem of produced water (oilfield wastewater) disposal faced by the oil industry. By treating and reusing this water, we contribute to increased oil and gas extraction productivity while minimizing operational costs and environmental impact. Our focus on turning waste into a valuable resource ensures that produced water is safely and cost-efficiently discharged or reused for various purposes, contributing to water conservation efforts and mitigating water scarcity concerns.

    In summary, Lithium Harvest's commitment to sustainability drives our innovative and environmentally conscious practices in lithium extraction and produced water treatment. By offering a more sustainable and affordable lithium supply, maximizing resource utilization, and minimizing environmental impacts, we are actively contributing to a greener future.

Sustainable Lithium Extraction: Addressing SDGs for a Greener Future

Our company's innovative approach to extracting lithium from oilfield wastewater aligns with several United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically SDGs 6, 7, and 13.

SDG 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation: Our process of extracting lithium from oilfield wastewater directly addresses the SDG 6 goal of ensuring water and sanitation availability and sustainable management for all. Using wastewater as a resource reduces the pressure on freshwater sources, which are becoming increasingly scarce in many parts of the world.

Moreover, our process helps to treat wastewater, reducing the risk of pollution to water bodies and mitigating the potential negative impacts of oilfield wastewater on the environment and human health. 

SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy: Our approach also aligns with SDG 7, which aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all. Lithium is a critical component in manufacturing batteries, which are used in various clean energy applications, including electric vehicles, renewable energy storage systems, and portable electronics.

By extracting lithium more sustainably, our company contributes to the development of clean energy technologies, which can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change. 

SDG 13 - Climate Action: Using oilfield wastewater to extract lithium also supports SDG 13, which seeks urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. As mentioned above, lithium is a critical component in manufacturing batteries, which can store renewable energy and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

By promoting the use of clean energy technologies and making battery production more sustainable, our company contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helps to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
