DLE: a game-changer for the U.S. lithium supply chain?

This topic will explore how direct lithium extraction (DLE) can potentially provide a domestic and sustainable source of lithium for the growing demand of electric vehicles and energy storage systems in the U.S. market. It will also discuss the challenges and opportunities of DLE in terms of technology, economics, and environmental impacts.

Comparing different DLE technologies and their performance

This topic will compare and contrast different DLE technologies, such as solvent extraction, membranes, adsorbents, and ion exchange, and evaluate their performance in terms of lithium recovery, selectivity, cost, and scalability. It will also highlight the latest innovations and developments in DLE technology and their potential applications.

Leveraging geothermal energy for DLE: the case of the Salton Sea

This topic will showcase the Salton Sea as a promising location for DLE, as it has one of the world's largest lithium resources in its geothermal brine. It will also demonstrate how geothermal energy can be used as a renewable power source for DLE, reducing the carbon footprint and enhancing the efficiency of lithium production.

The role of DLE in the clean energy transition

This topic will examine how DLE can contribute to the clean energy transition by enabling the production of high-quality lithium for next-generation batteries and energy storage systems. It will also address the social and environmental benefits of DLE, such as reducing water consumption, land use, and greenhouse gas emissions, compared to conventional lithium extraction methods.

The regulatory and policy landscape for DLE in North America

This topic will analyze the current and future regulatory and policy frameworks for DLE in North America, and how they affect the development and deployment of DLE projects. It will also identify the key stakeholders and influencers in the DLE industry, and how they can collaborate and communicate to advance the DLE agenda.

The business case and investment opportunities for DLE in North America

This topic will present the business case and investment opportunities for DLE in North America, and how they compare to other regions and markets. It will also highlight the key drivers and barriers for DLE adoption, and the strategies and best practices for DLE project development and financing.

The challenges and risks of DLE in North America

This topic will explore the challenges and risks of DLE in North America, such as technical, operational, environmental, social, and geopolitical issues. It will also discuss the mitigation and management measures for DLE risks, and the lessons learned from DLE projects around the world.

The future outlook and scenarios for DLE in North America

This topic will provide the future outlook and scenarios for DLE in North America, based on the current trends, projections, and uncertainties. It will also explore the potential impacts and implications of DLE for the lithium industry, the energy sector, and the society at large.

These are just a few suggested topics, and we are open to other suggestions as well. We are looking for speakers who are experts in their field and who can provide insights and perspectives that will be valuable to our audience.

If you are interested in speaking at the Lithium Forum, please submit your proposal by February 28th, 2024. We will review all proposals and select speakers based on their expertise, experience, and relevance to the event.
