UW researchers discover major lithium resource in Wyoming; potential integrated brine production/CO2 storage system

Green Car Congress

Researchers at the University of Wyoming Carbon Management Institute (CMI) discovered a major new lithium resource near Rock Springs during a geological carbon dioxide storage site characterization project sponsored by the US Department of Energy. We’re excited about this discovery and the prospect of creating a completely new industry in Wyoming.
