La Negra, Chile

Our Lithium Conversion plant is located at La Negra, near Antofagasta in Chile. In 1984, we began to produce lithium carbonate at our La Negra facility on the basis of natural brines from the Salar de Atacama, one of the driest deserts on earth. In 1998, a lithium chloride plant in La Negra was brought on stream. Production capacity has been expanded there since then and further expansions are in process to meet the needs of the growing

Salar De Atacama, CHILE

This production site of Albemarle 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. The production process begins with the treatment of the natural brine that is obtained from the Salar de Atacama's nucleus and put into open air pools, where thanks to the solar evaporation process it reaches a concentration of 6% lithium. To date, the production capacity has been expanded there to secure long-term supply in the growing markets for lithium. Future expansions are already in process.
