Green Lithium is an innovative development company with plans to construct, commission and operate a large-scale lithium refinery in the UK, and provide high-purity lithium hydroxide to UK and European markets
The company will harness industry-leading process technology enabling clean, low-carbon processing of high volumes of lithium ore
There is currently no large-scale refining capability in Europe despite a significant market opportunity. Working with key strategic partners to address the need to improve the European battery-metal supply chain, Green Lithium will support the ‘net-zero’ ambitions of society to transition to the future green economy.
Green Lithium’s refinery will be a cornerstone UK green-infrastructure asset, enabling UK-based cathode, battery cell and EV manufacture, ushering in an era of decarbonisation and green jobs, and supporting long-term economic prosperity.
The project started when founders Richard Taylor and Guy Hatcher identified a critical gap in the future UK and European battery supply chain
This led them to undertake extensive work mapping hard-rock lithium resources and, in the process, gain deep understanding of the lithium mineral ecosystem. Four years later, Green Lithium has secured over £2m in funding through private investment and government grants, established a detailed programme of delivery, assembled a core project delivery team comprising 60+ in-house and third-party team members, and formed commercial partnerships with key suppliers and offtakers.
