 E3 METALS CORP. (TSXV: ETMC) (FSE: OU7A) (OTC: EEMMF) (the “Company” or “E3 Metals“), an emerging lithium developer and leading lithium extraction technology innovator today announced improvements to the performance of its Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technology. The development work with Livent Corporation (“Livent”) has focused on enhancing the overall performance of the technology with the goal towards commercial deployment, planned to ultimately be demonstrated in a pilot plant. Recently, the life span of the material used within the DLE process has increased by six times.

The increase in performance of the DLE material can help to further support the economics of the project. A major step to demonstrating commercial viability is to demonstrate the technology in a pilot plant. The Company is working closely with Livent to move towards this goal as soon as possible.

“The continual improvement of this technology is thanks to the great work from E3 Metals and Livent teams, working together with GreenCentre Canada,” commented Chris Doornbos , E3 Metals President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are very excited by the results coming from the development team on a regular basis.”
