Green lithium processing using biotechnology

Maverick Bioworks is a biotechnology company advancing lithium processing. The company was founded by Eric Herrera, former Department of Defense scientist, and Jesse Evans, former startup operations manager. We've developed a biological process to efficiently extract lithium from hard rock deposits. Our custom process is greener, more energy efficient, and cost effective compared to the current methods of extracting lithium. We're currently developing partnerships with mining companies to further the commercialization of our technology.
