AMG Lithium GmbH was founded in 2018 and is headquartered in Frankfurt, Germany. Its team focuses on the production and development of high-quality lithium-containing materials for the Energy Storage sector.
In Frankfurt, AMG Lithium operates research labs in order to support the refining facility, and does research and development on novel materials for next-generation batteries.
Lithium is a reactive metal with a high heat capacity and a low atomic mass. Lithium has become a critical component for battery electrolytes and electrodes due to its high electrode potential and high charge- and power-to-weight ratio. Lithium-ion batteries, in particular, have a high energy density and are rechargeable.
The market for lithium, a reactive metal with a high heat capacity, is growing rapidly, driven by a rising need for renewable energy (grid storage), strong demand for electric vehicles (EVs), and robust growth in smartphones, tablets, and wearables.
In addition to demand for lithium for batteries, non-battery demand includes a wide variety of applications, including in the life sciences, ceramics, coolants and specialty chemicals fields.
