About Nemaska Lithium
Nemaska Lithium is a developing company that intends to operate a lithium mine at Whabouchi in Nord-du-Québec, and to process the concentrated mineral into lithium hydroxide at its future conversion plant to be located in the Parc Industriel et Portuaire de Bécancour. The high purity lithium hydroxide that will be produced is primarily destined for the fast-growing lithium-ion battery market, which is driven by the increasing worldwide demand for ground transportation electrification and energy storage. Through its products and processes, Nemaska Lithium intends to facilitate access to green energy. Once in operation, the project will create nearly 400 quality jobs in Québec.
