  15. 15. International Lithium 2017 15 Selective Recovery of Lithium (and other cations) using Membrane Technology  a possible alternative to the natural evaporation process  could provide a process route to produce lithium hydroxide directly from the raw brine  no need to remove contaminants like magnesium by liming, as would be required in the natural evaporation process.  with further refining the technology could also permit the recovery of potassium and other cations if desired.
