Summit Nanotech CEO Amanda Hall interview
Summit Nanotech Corporation has developed direct lithium extraction (DLE) processes to economically and sustainably unlock lithium resources globally.
Summit’s extraction processes (denaLi™) were designed to address critical supply constraints and sustainability requirements required to meet the surge in lithium demand due to the increased pace of adoption of electric vehicles and renewable energy.
Summit’s denaLi™ modular units are designed to double the yield, reduce GHG emissions, minimize chemicals and freshwater use, and cut waste by 90% compared to traditional methods, surpassing global ESG standards. In addition, the denaLi™ H technology is being developed to recover lithium from lithium-ion battery recycling streams contributing to the circular economy of the future.
