Faces and places: Our Arkansas lithium project

Our very first lithium project is made possible by a team of experts from across our company. Their groundbreaking effort in southwest Arkansas will provide more lithium for electric vehicle batteries, with less environmental impact. They’re also unlocking a potentially significant new supply of lithium in North America, which today produces relatively little of this critical mineral.
