About us

CleanTech Lithium (CTL)

We are creating a new path for lithium based on sustainable extraction and low emissions.

We produce lithium using a sustainable direct extraction method, which returns water to its source instead of depleting vital aquifers. Our projects are based in Chile, one the worlds best solar regions. We utilise solar energy for process power. The result being that our overall process has a very low CO2 footprint. This gives us a critical advantage in the European market which has set strict emissions limits.
