Livista Energy Europe S.A. is a company developing a series of projects for lithium chemical refining plants in Europe, securing energy independence for the region at a time when Europe is almost entirely dependent upon Asia for these critical raw materials for the batteries of the Electrical Vehicles (EV).
Participating in the development and growth of Livista Energy represents a contribution to a better environment by supporting the energy transition and maximising the circular economy by processing materials sourced from recycled batteries.
The first plant is planned to be built in Europe, starting construction in 2024 and production in 2026 and the second one will start 6 months after.
We will launch the FEED (Front End Engineering Design) in the coming months and then we will deploy a Project management team in our contractor’s office in Western Europe.
Our head office in Luxembourg is launching recruitment of key personnel in Europe to prepare our deployment.
You live for a challenging start-up culture and want to be part of a unique project making history in energy transition.
