A campaign of laboratory tests has made it possible to produce battery-grade lithium hydroxide using granite from the Beauvoir quarry. These encouraging results confirm Imerys’ technological capabilities and the effectiveness of the processes put in place for the EMILI project.
With the construction of a new onsite energy recovery plant, Imerys is capturing the feedstock energy contained in syngas, a by-product generated during the carbon black manufacturing. The project – a partnership with energy supplier E.On – will significantly reduce the environmental footprint of carbon black – a key additive in lithium ion batteries serving the clean energy transition.
By launching a project to mine lithium in France, Imerys is playing its part in the energy transition
On October 24, Imerys announced the start of the EMILI project in the presence of government officials, elected representatives and local authorities.
Imerys exhibited and presented at this week’s UNITECR, a key technical conference for the refractory industry. Experts from the Group discussed new products, sustainability and how to support young professionals in the industry.
As it seeks to take on the challenges and opportunities of the future, Imerys needs partners in innovation with whom it can fully leverage the latest emerging and transformative research.
Calcium aluminate has been used in sewer environments since the 1940s. Initially, the drivers for its use included its resistance to sulfates in soil, rapid return to service and superior abrasion resistance.
The team's joint efforts brought recognition from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The lithium-ion battery market has vastly expanded in recent years and our Graphite & Carbon business is fully committed to supporting this market growth.
