Team of High-Value Utilization of Salt Lake Resources



The team has long been devoted to the basic and applied research of comprehensive utilization of salt lake resources. In recent years, the main research focuses on lithium isotope separation and phase change materials. The team has participated and completed dozens of national, provincial and ministry scientific research projects, and won 6 provincial-level scientific and technological progress awards. A number of scientific and technological achievements have been successfully transformed, leading to considerable benefits to the national economy and society.
