CleanTech Lithium's use of Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE)

CleanTech Lithium PLC is a company that wants to be a top supplier of clean, high-quality lithium for electric vehicles and batteries. They are using a new technology called Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) to extract lithium from brine in an environmentally friendly way. Instead of mining or using evaporation ponds, they use a resin to capture lithium. DLE is better than traditional methods because it can capture a higher percentage of lithium and takes less time.

Pilot plant in Chile

CleanTech Lithium has been working on this for a while and has a large lithium resource base in Chile, which is a mining-friendly country. The Chilean government is also supporting CleanTech Lithium's plans, which is good news for the company. They already have a pilot plant up and running and are talking to potential buyers. They are also planning to list on the ASX stock exchange to get more recognition and raise more money.
