SQM and Abermale say lithium production remains stable

With the Lithium industry beginning to feel the effects of the pandemic in Chile, SQM and Albemarle state that their operations are unaffected. Albemarle has said that it planned to immediately shut down its potash plant in the north of Chile for 15 business days to comply with restrictions required by authorities. Despite this decision, the company is adamant that this will not affect its lithium production. Meanwhile, SQM has reduced staff but state that dispatches remain stable.
