©2020 LiEP Energy Ltd.

LiEP Energy Ltd.  (pronounced “leap”) is a lithium technology company that has developed a lithium refining process to create a high-grade lithium hydroxide that can be used in energy storage solutions.  The company is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.


What We Do

LiEP’s technology is an electro-chemical extraction process for lithium hydroxide refining from lithium   concentrates


We will use our technology to increase supplies of lithium to meet  global demand for lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles.



Solving big problems requires our internal strengths as well as strategic partners and advisors



Conducting  focused research to develop robust technology


Produce low environmental footprint technology that requires minimal fresh water and non-toxic materials.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity helps us navigate the changing energy landscape

Michael Mislan

BSc, Chemical Engineering

Chief Technology Officer

Founding Memeber

Michael has a BSc in Chemical Engineering and is interested in the design of novel interdisciplinary techniques which integrate the extraction and transformation of resources into value-added products. He has experience in process design/operation, reservoir geochemistry and water treatment supporting a polymer production plant at Nova Chemicals and a SAGD Pilot Plant with Laricina Energy Ltd. He holds 5 patents with more in development


There is a gap between current lithium supply potential and future lithium demand needed for electric vehicles and mobile energy storage.  LiEP Energy was founded in 2017 by a team with knowledge from energy the sector to tackle this problem. 


We have over 60 years of experience using new technology to unlock conventional and unconventional resources and now we plan to do the same for lithium.
