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.

Lithium is a key component of electric vehicle batteries. To meet projected growth in EVs, the world will need a lot more lithium. ExxonMobil plans to become of leading supplier of lithium, using a modern process that has significantly less environmental impact than traditional mining.
