The demand for lithium is growing throughout the UK as we try to reach our eco – targets


Lithium has the lowest density of all metals. It was discovered from a mineral and is a soft, silvery metal. On the periodic table it has the symbol Li and atomic number 3. In standard conditions it is the lightest metal and since it is an alkali metal it is highly flammable and must be stored securely.

The demand for Lithium is ever growing as many countries want to reach their new green targets. Electric cars will play a huge role in reducing the use of fossil fuels and therefore increase the demand for lithium as one of the key elements in the batteries. 

UK enshrines new target in law to slash emissions by 78% by 2035

At Weardale Lithium we are working towards a greener future and hope to work with local communities to complete the project. 

Geothermal waters contain a lithium enriched brine which is then extracted from the Earth. Geothermal water extraction emits no Co2 back into the atmosphere, the use of water needed to extract is limited and it does not take up a lot of land. 

Weardale is one of two locations in England with geology enabling sufficient geothermal properties

At Weardale Lithium we hope to help pave the way to a greener, more sustainable future.
