SAO PAULO — Sigma Lithium Corporation, a global lithium producer dedicated to powering the electric vehicles with carbon neutral, chemical grade lithium concentrate, announces that its Greentech Plant has reached record daily peak production of 890 tonnes, equivalent to annualized production of 320,000 tonnes of Triple Zero Green Lithium at battery grade with 5.5 per cent of lithium oxide.

The company demonstrates it remains on track to achieve annual 2023 production guidance of 130,000 tonnes of Triple Zero Green Lithium.

Sigma Lithium has successfully ramped up its Greentech Plant to enable it to operate at 100 per cent of design nameplate throughput capacity of annualized production of 270,000 tonnes of Triple Zero Green Lithium.

Achieving these targets demonstrates the excellent performance of the Greentech Plant and its tailings dry-stacked circuit in synchronicity with Dense Medium Separation (DMS).

The company has exceeded the design utilization rate of 85 per cent, running at 88 per cent. Throughput has evolved, as planned, from 75 per cent throughput capacity at the end of July 2023 to 100 per cent design capacity, as of Sept. 30, 2023.

Sigma Lithium’s Greentech Plant is the first lithium plant in the world to produce chemical grade lithium concentrate without a tailings dam and with 100 per cent reuse of the water utilized in the processing.
