North Carolina plant boosts U.S. lithium capacity

Rockwood Lithium, as part of the federal government’s Recovery Act, opened a larger lithium factory in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, to help meet what’s expected to be an increase in lithium demand stemming from more purchases of plug-in vehicles.

The expanded plant is a result of a $28.4 million investment from the federal government’s Recovery Act and will support about 100 new jobs. Overall, the Rockwood Lithium project, which also includes a Nevada plant, will make enough lithium to make batteries for more than half a million electric-drive vehicles a year.
