Mr. Devasper spoke to Editor-in-Chief John Jannarone about the lithium and refining industry and how the U.S. holds almost 17% of the world’s lithium reserves, the importance of developing refining capabilities in the country and how the company is contributing by building a refinery in Oklahoma, and more.

About Stardust Power

Stardust Power is helping solve a national security issue for the United States: building one of the largest lithium refineries in America in a strategically located and central location.
The global energy transition is upon us and the global economy is quickly becoming electrified. The lack of domestic lithium production used to build batteries for EVs is creating a bottleneck in the American economy. The domestic and global demand for lithium is growing rapidly, and is poised to accelerate in the coming years as countries and companies adopt more aggressive decarbonization and renewable energy goals, creating a higher demand for electric vehicles and the lithium-ion batteries that power them. America needs refinery capacity as China currently dominates the global market.
