The project is expected to be a catalyst for economic development in Ghana, and foster job creation, technology transfer and sustainable practices. 

The construction of the lithium processing plant and training facility is slated to commence next year, with an anticipated completion date in early 2025.

The initiative was unveiled when the partners paid a courtesy call on the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, in Accra.

A release jointly issued in Accra by the partners said the move signals a significant leap forward in Africa's quest for sustainable energy solutions and economic development driven by the growing lithium industry.

It said the joint venture aims to construct an advanced training facility for lithium processing in Takoradi, emphasising skill development and knowledge transfer to empower local talent in the burgeoning lithium industry through the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT). 

The facility, it said, will play a pivotal role in enhancing Ghana's technological capabilities and fostering innovation in the region.

Dr Bawumia, the release said, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating that “we are delighted to witness the collaboration between ReElement Technologies Corporation and TECHGULF Ghana in establishing Africa's first battery-grade lithium processing plant. 

“This initiative aligns seamlessly with Ghana's commitment to sustainable development and positions the country as a key player in the rapidly evolving electric vehicle sector."

Commenting on the partnership, the Chief Executive Officer of TECHGUL, Franklin Asare, said by combining strengths with ReElement Technologies Corporation, he is confident in their ability to contribute to the sustainable growth of the lithium processing industry in Africa."
