Water and Lithium Recovery from Rock Springs Uplift Brines
The efficient and productive treatment of brines produced during carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is vital to the sustainability aspect of carbon capture. The Rock Springs Uplift saline formations contain brines with significant amounts of dissolved salts (sodium chloride, lithium carbonate, etc.). This project aims to design a safe and economically feasible brine treatment process for water recovery, and analyze the profitability of the recovery of lithium and other salts. Lithium carbonate is a major battery component with an increasing demand and price worldwide and road salt (sodium ...
