Circular Solutions for a Sustainable Future

Recovering lithium from black mass

About us

Lithium 367 is a Norway-based technology company committed to promoting sustainability by minimizing waste, preserving resources, and advocating for a circular economy.

As the demand for lithium continues to surge, there is an increasing need for efficient, cost-effective, and large-scale extraction and refining processes. Our team of experts is dedicated to developing a proprietary process that recovers lithium from end-of-life batteries. By reducing waste and conserving resources, our innovative approach to recycling helps to mitigate the environmental impact of the growing demand for lithium-ion batteries.

Our mission

To develop and bring to market innovative, cost-efficient, and sustainable processes for lithium recycling from black mass.

At Lithium 367, our objective is to address the increasing demand for lithium across various industries while minimizing the environmental footprint and waste generation. We are developing proprietary technology based on sustainable practices to minimize the environmental impact and contribute to a circular economy.


To become a leading provider of sustainable and environmentally responsible battery-grade lithium, working towards a greener and more sustainable future.

We aspire to establish a closed-loop lithium recycling system that supports the transition towards a circular economy, where valuable resources are reused, and waste is minimized.
