Albemarle's Attractive Low-Cost Lithium Resources Provide Long-Term Growth as EV Adoption Rises

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Seth Goldstein, CFA |

Albemarle is the world's largest producer of lithium, from which it generates the majority of total profits. It produces lithium through its own salt brine assets in Chile and the United States and two joint venture interests in Australian mines, Talison and Wodgina. The Chilean operation is among the world's lowest-cost sources of lithium. Talison is one of the best spodumene resources in the world, which allows Albemarle to be one of the lowest-cost lithium hydroxide producers as spodumene can be converted directly into hydroxide.
