Chemical audit of Li2CO3 process

Central Chemical Consulting have provided chemical audits on the two main process routes for lithium carbonate production. The work included a literature review and the development of a quantitative model to examine speciation, solubility and precipitation. These audits provided an assessment of the lithium carbonate process in terms of the underlying chemistry and physical behaviour of the system. Practical methods for the electrolytic recovery and re-use of several by-products from the lithium carbonate process were also evaluated in a desktop review.
