Rock Tech Lithium Inc. has announced the receipt of full permits for its planned lithium refinery in Guben, Germany. The Brandenburg State Office for the Environment granted final approval after an extensive review under the federal immission control act. This refinery is set to produce 24,000 tons of battery-grade lithium hydroxide annually.

Dirk Harbecke, Rock Tech’s Chairman and CEO, highlighted the significance of this achievement, noting that it marks the first full-scale lithium refinery in Europe to be permitted without any appeals. He credited the team’s efforts and the support from Brandenburg authorities for this milestone.

Rock Tech is a cleantech company operating in Canada and Germany, focusing on producing lithium hydroxide for electric vehicle batteries. The company plans to build lithium converters near its customers to ensure supply-chain transparency and just-in-time delivery. The Guben facility is the first, with a second converter planned for Red Rock, Ontario, Canada. Rock Tech sources raw material from its Georgia Lake spodumene project in Ontario and other responsible mines, aiming to include discarded batteries in the future. The company is committed to strict environmental, social, and governance standards and is developing a proprietary refining process for greater efficiency and sustainability.
