Production and products
Lithium carbonate is used in, for instance, batteries, ceramics and enamels, heat-proof glass, lubricants, the manufacture of aluminium, and air conditioning chemicals.
The manufacturing process of lithium carbonate produces analcime, i.e. sodium zeolite, as a by-product. Analcime is a porous zeolite with a number of industrial uses.
