IBAT’s New DLE Patent Allowance Meets Chile’s Mandate to Cut Water Waste
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada – March 31, 2023 - International Battery Metals Ltd. (the “Company”) (CSE: “IBAT”) (OTC: IBATF) (FSE: 8RE), announces it can fully meet the Chilean government’s requirement that all new lithium recovery projects use a Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) methodology.
Chile now requires use of a DLE means of lithium extraction in order to reduce loss of precious water resources. DLE technologies are more water efficient than traditional extraction methods, but are currently not used in Chile. Global scarcity, water misuse, and waste of water have had extremely detrimental effects on land, vegetation, animals and people.
