HomeAbout Us

Ganfeng Lithium is present In Latin America, in the provinces of Salta and Jujuy (Argentina), where it is running five lithium brine projects—in different salt flats—and another spodumene project—extracted from rock—in the state of Sonora (Mexico).

About UsOur History

Ganfeng Lithium was created in the year 2000. It has since become the world’s leading producer of lithium metals, and the second producer of lithium compounds worldwide. With over 328 R&D experts in its employ, the company has set up a complete circuit covering the lithium industry’s entire production chain: electric vehicles, energy storage, consumer electronics, the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, among many other applications.

Since its inception, Ganfeng has expanded its presence to five continents with operations in China, Australia, Ireland, Mexico, Mali and Argentina. There are five projects currently underway in Argentina, including Cauchari in the province of Jujuy, and Mariana, PPG, Incahuasi and Sal de la Puna in the province of Salta. This makes Argentina one of the leading lithium mining bases for the company.

For Ganfeng Lithium, its achievements have only been possible thanks to the quality of its team of professionals, and its high ethical values. These are enshrined in its commitment to use lithium resources to create a greener, cleaner and healthier life in the service of greater human development and progress.

Nuestra filosofíaThe creation of unlimited value

The materials recovered by Ganfeng from spent lithium materials, such as batteries that have reached the end of their useful life, and lithium-containing solutions, are reused to produce composites, metals, batteries and other products. After they are used and disposed of, they reenter the recycling system, thus creating a complete resource cycle. In this way, we make sure that limited resources acquire infinite value through countless instances of use.
Ganfeng is using its own energy storage equipment to produce solar and wind power thus replacing non-renewable fossil fuels with renewable clean energy.

From electric vehicles, aircraft casings, tires and 5G mobile phones, to wireless sound devices and lipid-lowering medicines, lithium resources are being increasingly integrated into daily life, bringing value to people in multiple dimensions.

At Ganfeng Lithium, we believe that our mission is to create unlimited value, contributing to the creation of products for the development of green energy. Ganfeng's projects in Latin America are critical to the global energy transition.
