We are Lithion

We push boundaries to make a positive difference in society.

We think beyond

Lithion has an ambitious vision: to enable the world to be powered by the greenest batteries available. 

We want to do things better by offering better technologies, a better approach to market, and a better business model. We rethink the value chain of lithium-ion batteries for you, for us and above all, for our children.

This vision made possible today what was unthinkable in 2017: recycling 95% of battery materials while producing 75% less GHGs than existing solutions. 
We’re aiming high. Our goal is for every major city to have its own Lithion critical mineral extraction plant to feed Lithion hydrometallurgy plants and supply the world with recycled strategic materials.

And we will get there! Beyond our cutting-edge technologies, we rely on a passionate team to offer the market the high-performance solutions it needs.
