Producing lithium and other critical materials from geothermal brines is a panacea - leveraging geothermal power production, the best source of renewable energy, with AAE's groundbreaking technology to co-produce critical materials needed for Electric Vehicles and other important industrial applications.
At AAE, LLC., we brought together the leading experts in geothermal and battery materials technology to create the world's first-ever integrated process to produce critical materials by partnering with geothermal power producers in Southern California's Imperial Valley. We apply our innovative and proprietary technology to the most prolific mineral-rich brine source in the world, resulting in a transformational method for competitively producing the highest performing materials from a secure, scalable, and sustainable resource base. With our proprietary bolt-on technology, AAE, LLC. and the Salton Sea will yield many decades of lithium, manganese, and zinc materials securing our critical materials future.
Our Current and Future Successes
The commercialization of our technology began with a demonstration facility in 2010 and has led to the opening of the world's highest purity lithium carbonate plant in September 2011. Having purchased the IP rights to the technology in 2016 AAE, LLC. is currently preparing to break ground on its first commercial lithium plant. Manganese and zinc performance battery materials production, making AAE, LLC. the 'one-stop' source for critical materials used in energy storage.
