waterStrider has a pilot facility in Vancouver, BC, Canada, for its proprietary Lithium Rapid Extraction and Concentration (LiRECTM) system and is test treating water for lithium extraction and concentration.
Our LiREC system is highly effective, with recovery of up to 99.9% of lithium from water and is ideally suited as a pre-DLE Extraction process that rapidly extracts and concentrates lithium by up to 50x into a solid cake. By significantly reducing the feedstock volume, DLE systems can be much smaller, lowering both capital and operating costs of direct lithium extraction.
In addition, LiREC removes a broad suite of contaminants from oil & gas produced water that need to be removed prior to DLE. LiREC enables lithium to be recovered from produced water and creates a clean brine that can be reused continuously by oil & gas producers or injected for disposal without fouling.
