About Green Lithium

Green Lithium plan to build one of Europe’s first large-scale lithium refineries at PD Ports in Teesside, UK. The creation of this substantial facility will begin to meet the urgent needs of the battery manufacturing and automotive sectors within the UK and the EU.

  • The proposed refinery will have flexibility of feedstock and produce battery-grade lithium chemicals to meet the demand of OEMs and Cathode manufacturers.
  • Green Lithium is targeting a highly-sustainable process that will produce lithium chemicals with a lower carbon impact than the market currently.
  • Green Lithium aims to enhance circular economies in the battery value chain and is currently developing IP around the re-use of the process byproduct.

UK Government Backing

“We’re backing companies, like Green Lithium here in Teesside, to grow the new, green industries across the UK, sparking jobs and growth for decades to come.”

– Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero

The Market

Lithium demand is forecasted to increase due to EV production.

  • The UK and EU markets are forecast to require over 800,000 tonnes of refined lithium a year*
  • China currently dominates lithium refining and Europe is wholly dependent on their products
  • Existing lithium refining is environmentally unfriendly
  • There will be UK and Europe-wide bans on internal combustion engines in 2035
  • The European market is currently valued at $1bn and is expected to rise to $12bn by 2030*
  • Carmakers are driving demand by launching 400+ new EV models between now and 2025**

Business Model

The nature of Green Lithium’s merchant model means that it is not tied to any specific mine or feedstock. This will help to unlock the market bottleneck by refining feedstock from a variety of geographies, whilst ensuring end-product flexibility to meet changes in market requirements.

Green Lithium has commissioned a life cycle assessment by Minviro. This shows that carbon emissions will be substantially lower than current Chinese refineries and the decarbonization case will produce 75% lower emissions.

Green Lithium will unlock UK circular economy opportunities in battery recycling and is currently developing IP around the commercial use of its byproduct to support other industries.
