Piedmont Lithium is developing a world-class integrated lithium business in the United States, enabling the transition to a net-zero world and the creation of a clean energy economy in America. The company’s location in the renowned Carolina Tin Spodumene Belt of North Carolina, the cradle of the lithium industry, positions Piedmont Lithium to be one of the world’s lowest-cost producers of lithium hydroxide and the most strategically located to serve the fast-growing US electric vehicle supply chain. The unique geographic proximity of the company’s resources, production operations, and prospective customers places it on the path to be the most sustainable provider of lithium hydroxide in the world and should allow Piedmont to play a pivotal role in supporting America’s move to the electrification of transportation and energy storage.
