Planta Salar, Chile

Albemarle (Chile)Rockwood Litio Ltda.
(Planta Salar)
Sector La Negra, Kilómetro 1357,

The production site of Rockwood Lithium in Chile is located at the Salar de Atacama, one of the driest deserts on earth. The surrounding conditions are ideal for the production of lithium carbonate on the basis of natural brines from the Salar.

Potash, for the manufacture of fertilisers, is also recovered at the Salar. In 1998, a lithium chloride plant was brought on stream.

Production capacity has been expanded there to secure long-term supply in the growing markets for lithium. Future expansions are already in process and will be realized within the next years.
