On December 11, the Vice President of Ghana announced that ReElement Technologies Corporation, a subsidiary of American Resources Corporation, had partnered with TECHGULF Ghana Limited in planning Africa’s first lithium processing plant in Ghana. The plant will have an initial refining capacity of 30,000 tons of battery-grade lithium carbonate per year. According to the statement, the partnership shall start with constructing an advanced pilot, training facility for lithium processing in Ghana, emphasizing skills and knowledge transfer to empower local talent. The construction of the lithium processing plant and training facility is to commence in the coming months, with an anticipated completion date in early 2025.
The project is expected to be a catalyst for Ghana’s economic growth and a critical strategy for getting a more integrated position in the battery value chain, instead of merely providing raw materials. Other African countries such as Zimbabwe have also realized the situation and made movements.
