Compass chooses lithium process for Great Salt L…

Koch Industries a major investor. Ford and LG Energy will buy their lithium.

They will use DLE (direct lithium extraction) technology which returns spent brine to the source avoiding a waste stream disposal problem.

Compass will license technology from Energy Source, which has Schlumberger as an investor.

California recently enacted a state lithium tax that may discourage Salton Sea investments.

Several other DLE companies seem to be folding. Bill Gates supported Lilac Solutions is mentioned as is EnergyX in Bolivia.
