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.
Total production capacity of Hell’s Kitchen Lithium is 75,000 tonnes of Lithium Carbonate Equivalent products per annum.
Rapid lithium extraction and production will be powered by 100% renewable geothermal energy generated onsite.
Lithium demand to increase exponentially with 30% electric vehicle market penetration expected by 2030 and 55% by 2040.
Hell’s Kitchen Lithium will be developed in modular stages with Unit 1 (15,000 Tonnes) LCE production expected in 2023.
