China to Help Build Bolivia's First Lithium Battery Plant
A group of Chinese technicians are expected in Bolivia to help install the country's first lithium battery plant, said an official on Tuesday.
Construction work on the pilot plant, located in the Uyuni salt field in the southern department of Potosi, will conclude in October, and the assembling phase of the plant will begin in November and end in January 2014, said Luis Alberto Echazu, head of the National Evaporite Resources Management Office.
"We hope to calibrate (the plant) in January and put it into operation surely by April, when we will have the first pilot production samples of batteries," he said.
