LITHOS: cost-effective processing and refining of lithium into lithium hydroxide from strategic European multi-mineral lithium hard-rock projects

A key update on the EMILI lithium project of Horizon Europe LITHOS’ partner Imerys

EMILI is one of the three case studies in LITHOS, next to Savannah Resources PLC‘s Barroso project and Sibanye-Stillwater’s Keliber lithium project in Finland.

Groupe TF1 (French TV) is talking about one of Imerys’s key projects in Europe!

In the Allier department, France, Imerys is spearheading the EMILI project, which aims to open one of Europe’s largest lithium extraction mines on French soil.

Imerys is currently entering a new phase where the floor will be opened to all stakeholders in a public debate which will continue through to July. The aim of this debate is to allow Imerys to explain the EMILI project, interact with stakeholders and take on comments and concerns from the public. Imerys encourages everyone to participate and share their thoughts, comments and questions.

EMILI will play an essential role in the development of the European market for EV battery production.


– produce 34,000 tons of lithium hydroxide annually;
– equip approximately 700,000 electric vehicles each year for at least 25 years in the most sustainable way possible thanks to our production of lithium;
– minimize effects on the environment and water quality.

Share your thoughts about the project and participate in the public debate (in French) here:
