Germanys first Lithium Hydroxide Refinery in Chemiepark Bitterfeld-Wolfen

10-Feb-2022 14:10

Chemiepark Bitterfeld-Wolfen will soon be home to AMG Lithium’s future production plant for lithium hydroxide battery-grade. The aim is to reliably supply the European battery industry with this key raw material with short delivery routes.

Lithium hydroxide battery-grade is used to produce cathode materials installed in cells for lithium-ion batteries. This standard is characterized by an extremely low content of impurities - an essential requirement for use in battery cells.

The availability of battery materials is the central driver for the sustainable success of mega trends such as electromobility and stationary energy storage. Therefore, Chemiepark Bitterfeld-Wolfen GmbH is very pleased about the settlement of AMG Lithium GmbH with Germany's first lithium refinery.

"By locating AMG, we will further strengthen our position in Energy Materials," says Patrice Heine, managing director of CPG. "We are currently feeling a lot of momentum in the segment, with new battery materials or, for example, porous materials for capacitors. In the medium term, we want to bring the entire value chain for battery materials to our site - and, by truly recycling the batteries, transfer them to a sustainable circular economy.“

The plant’s first module will be commissioned in 2023 with an annual capacity of 20,000 tons of lithium hydroxide. According to AMG Lithium Managing Director Stefan Scherer, additional modules will follow in subsequent years, increasing capacity to up to 100,000 tons.
