🚀 Reflecting on Adionics’ Remarkable 2023 Milestones
💰 Series B : We celebrated a major milestone with our $27 million Series B funding announced in November 2023. Welcome to SQM. This funding is critical to our industrial expansion, continued R&D and team growth.
🛠️ Salar de Atacama Test Success: We completed 1500 hours of continuous, stable, on-site lithium extraction from brine testing in the Salar de Atacama. This achievement underscores the reliability, efficiency and commercial viability of our technology.
🌎 Argentina office opened: Our global footprint grew with the opening of our subsidiary in Argentina, marking an important step in our international presence and commitment to the lithium extraction industry.
🔋R&D progress on Flionex®: We continued our R&D efforts to advance Flionex®, focusing on battery recycling and hard rock applications. Our commitment to developing sustainable and efficient lithium extraction technologies remains stronger than ever.
🧪 Breakthrough with Litica Resources: In collaboration with Litica Resources, we achieved amazing results. Our pilot successfully converted raw brine into 99.85% pure lithium carbonate, demonstrating the effectiveness, robustness and repeatability of our DLE technology.
🌐 Looking ahead to 2024, we’re poised for even greater achievements with our expansion into the U.S. market, a steadfast commitment to industrialization, and the growth of our dynamic team to 80 employees by the end of the year. This expansion will strengthen our R&D capabilities in novel applications and propel us forward in advancing our cutting-edge technology.” 🚀✨
