Simbol Materials leverages brines from geothermal power production, where our proprietary separation technology extracts lithium, manganese, and zinc in high quality at the first product cut. We transform these materials using by-products from the geothermal plant, such as CO2, wastewater, and condensate, into high performance battery materials using our proprietary materials synthesis technology. Our technology is fundamentally different from traditional, invasive methods of materials extraction that are energy intensive, require vast amounts of water and land, produce mountains of waste, and yield low performing materials with unwanted impurities.
By applying our breakthrough technology to the world’s most prolific hydrothermal resource, found in California’s Imperial Valley, Simbol Materials is able to competitively, sustainably, and reliably meet the world’s needs for high performance battery materials for years to come. This is made possible by our process technology that is virtually waste-free, requires minimal energy and land, enhances the environment, and fosters the production of geothermal power – the best source of renewable energy.
