Rock Tech Lithium Receives Construction and Operations Permit Approvals for German Lithium Refinery

Toronto, ON

Rock Tech Lithium Inc. is very pleased to announce that it has received the full permits for its planned Lithium refinery in Guben, Germany.

Today, the Brandenburg State Office for the Environment issued the final approval for Rock Tech’s Lithium refinery. The approval was preceded by an extensive review according to the federal immission control act (BImSchG) by the State Office for the Environment (LfU). The Company plans to produce 24,000 tons of battery-grade lithium hydroxide annually.

“This is an exciting day for Rock Tech. Not only have we received the full permits to operate our Converter in Germany, but also are we the first company in Europe to permit a full-scale Lithium Refinery – without any appeals to the project. This is testament to the great work of our team. I also would like to thank the Brandenburg authorities for their support and diligence.” said Rock Tech’s Chairman and CEO Dirk Harbecke.
