VANCOUVER — SIGMA Lithium Corporation, a global lithium producer, has successfully achieved net zero carbon emissions with the successful execution of its first shipment of Triple Zero Green Lithium and Triple Zero Green By-Products.

Sigma Lithium has begun generating revenue from Phase 1 and expects to produce approximately 130,000 tonnes of Triple Zero Green Lithium in calendar year 2023 as it ramps up to full-scale Phase 1 production. The company expects to reach Phase 2 & 3 full production capacity in 2024.

Ramp-up of Phase 1 production continues to advance, currently operating at approximately 75 per cent of nameplate throughput capacity. Importantly, Sigma Lithium has achieved maximum DMS recoveries of 60 per cent and is tracking towards design recoveries of 65 per cent while also achieving expected high-quality technical specifications and purity for the Company’s Triple Zero Green Lithium, even achieving recent production of up to 6.4 per cent Li2O lithium concentrate.

“We are thrilled with our partnership with Sigma Lithium,” said Carbonext CEO, Janaína Dallan. “Ana Cabral is notoriously committed to the Company’s environmental and socioeconomic agenda and we would like to congratulate Sigma for engaging in the fight against climate change with Carbonext. Projects like the ones Sigma is supporting protect more than 2 million hectares in the Amazon biome with support for constant local and satellite monitoring to ensure high integrity and quality of forest preservation projects and socio-environmental benefits to local communities.”
