KSS is pleased to announce the launch of our Li-PRO™ lithium extraction process, featuring a proprietary global solution for Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE). The solution is geared towards customers seeking an optimized solution to developing lithium battery materials to keep up with the growing demand for lithium batteries, primarily in electric vehicles. The patent-pending Li-PRO process combines specialized lithium selective extraction media and leading KSS equipment including robust PURON® membrane-based pretreatment, Recoflo® packed bed lithium extraction, Recoflo softening, and high-recovery reverse osmosis (RO) concentration operations to generate a purified lithium chloride solution. The result is superior lithium recovery and purity, chemical consumption, water efficiency, and simplified system configurations, optimizing CAPEX and OPEX to lithium producers.
We are looking forward to collaborating with our parent company, Koch Engineered Solutions (KES), to become a preferred partner and complete solutions provider to lithium producers worldwide. KES provides a variety of internal resources to support project success through engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services offered through Optimized Process Designs, LLC (OPD). This partnership allows KSS to offer complete package plant design and full-scale project execution in one comprehensive offering.
Koch Industries is also a major investor in the lithium market space, recognizing the need for alternative energy sources and the importance of sustainable technologies and engineering. Through Koch Minerals & Trading, LLC (KMT), Koch Industries invests heavily in lithium producers and participates in the trading of lithium battery material, providing these valuable resources to various end users around the world to drive innovation. Our team at KSS is eager to help lithium producers optimize their lithium extraction operation through employment of the Li-PRO process, whether it is limited to standalone separation processes or a complete, end-to-end solution.
