Lithium is an important national strategic resource. 80% of China’s Lithium are relying on imports, with the vigorous development of 3C and new energy vehicles, and Lithium has become a “bottleneck” that restricts the new energy industry of China. The membrane separation technology innovation team has solved the key core technical issues of lithium extraction from salt lake brine, completed a series of innovations from theoretical research to industrialization, and added chips to break the international monopoly pattern of lithium resources.
Theoretical Innovation: a new theory of microscopic force of membrane pollution was proposed, and the functional membrane of new functional materials and two-dimensional materials were prepared. The theory of limited channel interface charge was proposed,realizing the precise separation of ions, which was published in the sub journal of the Nature.
Technical breakthrough:The ultrafiltration membrane suitable for water quality was developed based on micro forces, and the technology of "Efficient Adsorption + Multi-Effect Membrane Separation" was developed. More than 30 invention patents have been authorized, and won the Second Prize Of Innovation Achievements Of China's Industry University Research Cooperation as well as the Gold Medal Of China's "Internet+" Innovation And Entrepreneurship Competition.
Achievement Transformation Mode: A new model of deep integration of industry, academia and research has been formed, which formed a new pattern of "Joint R&D Platform+ incubation of Creative Space + seed/angel funding". More than 30 patented technologies have been rapidly transformed, and nearly 10 incubated enterprises have a total valuation of over 2 billion yuan, with multiple reports from mainstream media such as CCTV.
Industrialization: An industrial platform with annual production of three million square meters of membrane products was transformed from DOYUM; A production base with annual output of 10,000 Ton was built by Gold-in Membrane of Lenghu, and is able to stably produce Lithium carbonate (with a magnesium ration of 1300:1 ) from brine water, the cost of which is only 1/3-1/2 of that of international peers, laying a stable foundation for the development of new energy industry.
