The project was successful put into commissioning and production at one go in 2012. It produced 18kt/a lithium carbonate from the bittern by the process of “purification—concentration—refining—precipitation—drying”. The main production index all achieved or surpassed the design target. The technology occupies the leading place at home and abroad. The project won the first prize in Qinghai for Science and Technology Progress in 2011 and the ministeriallevel first prize for Excellent Engineering Design in 2013.
