Lithium + Geothermal Powerfully Combined

Controlled Thermal Resources is in the advanced stages of developing a rapid lithium extraction and production facility Hell’s Kitchen Lithium; located in Imperial Valley, California.  This world-scale facility will set new environmental standards for the delivery of battery-grade lithium products while remaining cost competitive in a secure, U.S. location.

As exponential growth in electric vehicle production continues, and advances in energy storage technologies gain momentum, lithium demand is expected to exceed supply by as early as 2023.  CTR is ideally positioned and well-timed to meet this growing demand.
