Infinity Lithium has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Spanish industrial group Ercros for the supply of reagents to be used in the production of lithium chemicals at the San Jose Lithium Project. 

The collaboration with Ercros, Spain’s leading basic chemicals producer, allows access to essential production inputs sourced from within the country. 

San Jose is a strategically significant European asset retaining an ongoing advantageous sustainability and carbon emission profile. In maintaining a continued focus on the lithium ion battery supply chain carbon footprint, it remains a priority for Infinity to partner with a domestic supplier of sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide to meet its processing requirements and execute a product offtake.

Infinity is currently undertaking technical works as part of the progression towards completion of a Pre-feasibility Study to produce lithium hydroxide on site.

Infinity Lithium’s CEO & Managing Director Ryan Parkin commented: “Automakers have already announced they need to be able to maintain visibility of their entire supply chain, including mining and lithium chemical activities, and ensure their suppliers reduce carbon emissions and the impact on the environment.

“Through being strategically located in Spain with mining and processing lithium chemical activities on site, Infinity is in a unique position to limit transport and CO2 emissions. However, and similarly to automakers, we also need to be able to look at our own supply chain and make sure we limit our carbon footprint, hence our decision to source our reagents domestically.”

Ercros Commercial Director, Carles Arias added: “Ercros is pleased to participate in Europe’s move towards Electric Mobility and lower CO2 emissions by supporting Infinity’s operations and supplying key reagents for the production of lithium chemicals that can be used directly in batteries.”
