Paris/France – Technip Energies has been awarded a Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) contract by Viridian Lithium for the construction of the first lithium refining and conversion plant in Europe.
Located in Lauterbourg, France, the plant will produce up to 100,000 tons of Battery Grade lithium chemicals per year – which is the equivalent capacity to power 2 million electric vehicles – to enable a secure and sustainable battery supply chain for the transition to electric mobility.
The contract consists in a Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS), and a preferential right on the construction of the plant and its three foreseen extensions.
Purified lithium chemicals are non-substitutable materials for lithium-ion batteries and are strategic materials for the European automotive industry. The Project will increase the supply chain autonomy of the region’s electric vehicle industry. Lithium is one of the four key metals of the energy transition.
