The production of Lithium Carbonate and Lithium Hydroxide is based on lithium chloride solutions obtained in the Salar de Atacama as a by-product of the production of potassium chloride. These solutions are then processed to produce Lithium Carbonate and Lithium Hydroxide in a plant located in the Salar del Carmen, near Antofagasta. The brines that are not used are re-injected into the salt flats.

In the Salar de Atacama are the largest and best quality reserves of Lithium from brines. These are at the core of the Salar de Atacama, a saline body with brine deposits which generated due to water leakage coming from the basement of the Andes.
