Kemerton, Australia

In 2019, Albemarle Corporation commenced construction at the Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area in Western Australia to develop the Kemerton lithium hydroxide processing plant (“Kemerton”). Once construction is complete, Kemerton will process spodumene ore to produce lithium hydroxide product and a sodium sulfate by-product. Kemerton is expected to have an initial capacity of about 50,000 metric tons LCE of lithium hydroxide, with an ability to expand to 100,000 metric tons LCE over time.

Kings Mountain, North Carolina

Our 800 acre site sits on one of the richest spodumene ore deposits in the world. In addition, this site produces battery-grade lithium hydroxide, lithium bromide, lithium chloride, USP-grade lithium carbonate, high purity lithium carbonate, battery grade lithium metal products and lithium alloy powders. Our Global Technical Center and Piloting Operation has the capability to produce a wide range of new lithium based materials for battery applications. In addition, lithium-based chemicals including amides, hydrides, and alkoxides can also be made by our Pilot Plant. In 2012, we completed the design and construction of a new world-class 5,000 metric ton battery-grade lithium hydroxide plant and a new state-of-the-art 57,000 square feet Global Technical Center making Kings Mountain one of the most sophisticated advanced lithium material sites in the world.

La Negra, Chile

Our Lithium Conversion plant is located at La Negra, near Antofagasta in Chile. In 1984, we began to produce lithium carbonate at our La Negra facility on the basis of natural brines from the Salar de Atacama, one of the driest deserts on earth. In 1998, a lithium chloride plant in La Negra was brought on stream. Production capacity has been expanded there since then and further expansions are in process to meet the needs of the growing

Langelsheim, Germany

Our production plant is located at the "Standort Innerstetal" in Langelsheim.

In 1921 Lithium metal is produced for the first time in Langelsheim, so the site could be declared as the cradle of industrial lithium chemistry. Since then the site added a huge number of various lithium compounds – for many of these Albemarle is the world market leader. In addition to lithium products, Albemarle also processes special metals like zirconium, barium, or cesium in Langelsheim - originally a by-product of lithium production. There are eight different production facilities at the site. 550 employees work here. On average, there are also 60 to 70 trainees. The infrastructure of the entire site is operated by Albemarle. We take our responsibility for safety very seriously pursuing a zero accident policy. Albemarle operates its own fire brigade for the Langelsheim site, which is also responsible for the other local companies onsite and specializes in chemical hazards.

Mumbai, India

We have been a pioneer in India for over 20 years, starting with the supply of laboratory and pilot quantities to major organic synthesis projects. The company recently introduced several successful new products onto the Indian market.

Today, all major producers of active pharmaceutical ingredients, as well as numerous generic drug manufacturers are supplied in particular with the groups specialties and cesium compounds and Albemarle works closely together with research departments as well as the CROs (Contract Research Organization).

The pharmaceutical sector in India has been growing rapidly and has gained strong global market presence in cardio-vascular treatment drugs, as well as medicines for HIV treatment. This market should continue to grow, as more active ingredients come off patent and the recognized competitive edge of the Indian pharmaceutical industry is also of essential benefit for lowering the cost, as driven by NGOs.

Safi, Jordan

Our 50% interest in JBC, a consolidated joint venture established in 1999, with operations in Safi, Jordan, acquires bromine that is originally sourced from the Dead Sea. JBC processes the bromine at its facilities into a variety of end products. The JBC operation is located in on a 26-ha area on the southeastern edge of the Dead Sea, about 6 kilometers north of the of the APC plant. JBC also has a 2-hectare storage facility within the free-zone industrial area at the Port of Aqaba. The Port of Aqaba is approximately 205 km south of JBC via Highway 65. 

A concentrated bromide-enriched brine extracted from APC’s evaporation ponds is the feed material for the JBC plant. Following the formation of the joint venture, the JBC bromine plant began operations in 2002. Expansion of the facilities to double its bromine production capacity went into operation in 2017. The climate, geology and location provide a setting that makes the Dead Sea a valuable large-scale natural resource for potash and bromine. Today, the Dead Sea has a surface area of 583 km and a brine volume of 110 km. The Dead Sea is the world’s saltiest natural lake, containing high concentrations of ions compared to that of regular sea water and an unusually high amount of magnesium and bromine. There is an estimated 900 million tonnes of bromine in the Dead Sea.

Salar De Atacama, CHILE

This production site of Albemarle in Chile is located at the Salar de Atacama, one of the driest deserts on earth. The surrounding conditions are ideal for the production of lithium carbonate on the basis of natural brines from the Salar. The production process begins with the treatment of the natural brine that is obtained from the Salar de Atacama's nucleus and put into open air pools, where thanks to the solar evaporation process it reaches a concentration of 6% lithium. To date, the production capacity has been expanded there to secure long-term supply in the growing markets for lithium. Future expansions are already in process.

Silver Peak, Nevada

Silver Peak is an Albemarle production site for our Lithium business. It is recognized as the only producing lithium mine in North America. In the 1960s, Foote pioneered the production of lithium carbonate from brine with the opening of the Silver Peak, NV plant. In 1984, the world’s richest commercial brine deposit went on stream at Salar de Atacama in the desert of northern Chile. Today, the Silver Peak and Salar de Atacama plants combine to produce in excess of 60 m mt of lithium carbonate equivalents per year. In addition to lithium carbonate, Albemarle produces in Silver Peak special lithium hydroxide grades. Products developed here are most notably used in the application of lithium batteries to create a sustainable and affordable energy storage technology that reduces greenhouse gases, enables life-saving portable medical devices, and diversifies the world's energy position.

The company was founded in 1996 as a fully-owned subsidiary. The construction of a butyllithium production facility was completed in 1999. The plant is located south of Taichung Harbour in Chang Hua Industrial Coastal Park. The facility is a dedicated unit for the production of both normal and secondary butyllithium. Its production capacity allows Albemarle to serve the Asian market effectively. The company can supply butyllithium in all quantities and all forms of packaging, from small volumes for the pilot plant to large quantities in tank containers.

All concentrations of n-butyllithium in different solutions are available, from the diluted product in the 10% range up to the concentrate (90%). The Taiwanese plant's two-hectare site is large enough to allow for future expansion or the erection of new production units to supply material resources to the region's markets on a long-term basis.
