Bolivia: YLB's lithium carbonate production 2018-2021

In 2018, lithium carbonate production of Bolivian state-owned company Yacimientos de Litio Bolivianos (YBL) amounted to 250 metric tons. YBL is responsible for developing the entire production chain of salt flats' resources in the country, such as lithium and potassium salts. YLB's lithium carbonate production is still in the pilot stage, but is expected to reach 15 thousand metric tons by 2021, when the plant is operating at full capacity.

YLB was founded in 2017, under the Ministry of Economy, replacing the former responsible organ, Gerencia Nacional de Recursos Evaporíticos (GNRE). Bolivia's lithium reserves were estimated at more than 20 million tons in 2019.
