First Phosphate Corp. Completes Pilot Production of LFP Battery-Grade Purified Phosphoric Acid





First Phosphate Corp. (CSE: PHOS) (OTC: FRSPF) (FSE: KD0) is pleased to announce success in its pilot project to transform its high purity phosphate concentrate into battery-grade purified phosphoric acid for the lithium iron phosphate battery industry.


On September 6, 2023, the Company announced that Prayon Technologies SA had been successful in transforming First Phosphate’s phosphate concentrate into high quality merchant grade phosphoric acid (“MGA”). Subsequently, Prayon completed the second stage of the process to transform the MGA into PPA in conformity with the Prayon food grade / battery-grade specification. PPA samples are available upon selected client request and at nominal fee.


The full pilot process installation involving the transformation of the Company’s phosphate concentrate into PPA is viewable at:


“Our full transformation process from Quebec igneous phosphate rock to PPA for LFP batteries is now complete,” says First Phosphate CEO, John Passalacqua. “We can now engage our partners to begin the pilot process of producing LFP cathode active material and LFP battery cells from a fully North American source of battery-grade PPA.”
