Albemarle New Lithium US Southeast…

"While Albemarle had spoken vaguely in the past about building a U.S processing plant, it used Monday’s conference to announce the specific plan and said it will be key as the company aims to boost its overall lithium production capacity fivefold to 500,000 tonnes annually by 2030.

“The plant would be supplied from lithium extracted from the company’s Kings Mountain mine in North Carolina, which is currently mothballed but may reopen as soon as 2027.”
