Arizona Lithium opens research center

Arizona Lithium officially opened the Lithium Research Centre in Tempe, Ariz., on May 31 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by federal and state government officials as well as economic development officers.

The facility, which is backed by the Arizona Commerce Authority, is focused on technological advancements in lithium processing. It will also function as a test facility focused on the extraction of lithium from both Arizona Lithium’s major projects – Prairie in Saskatchewan and Big Sandy in Arizona.

“Arizona Lithium marks yet another international company investing in Arizona, showcasing the state’s global attractiveness,” said Arizona Commerce Authority President and CEO Sandra Watson. 

“The Tempe facility strengthens Arizona’s mining and materials industry and highlights our leadership in clean energy technologies, such as batteries.”

The Lithium Research Centre property spans over 9,700 square meters, and features a research laboratory and processing facility.
