GOAT Provides Transaction Update for Acquisition of Direct Lithium Extraction Technology
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GOAT Industries Ltd. (the “Company” or “GOAT”) (CSE: GOAT), announces that, further to its press release dated September 14, 2022, the Company is working through diligence of 1000288601 Ontario Inc. (“Ontario Co”) and its Canadian license for a leading Direct Lithium Extraction technology (the “DLE Technology”) and expects to enter into definitive agreements in the coming weeks.
The DLE Technology has been developed by private industry as well as university researchers based out of Australia and it is GOAT’s understanding it is more cost-effective extraction technology than fractional crystallization, membrane filtering, MOF’s, adsorption, reverse osmosis, and ion exchange. Upon closing, it is GOAT’s intention to pursue commercial partnerships with explorers and producers in brine rich Canadian jurisdictions.
The DLE Technology has the potential to reduce capital and operating costs, while accelerating lithium-based battery metal project startups via:
- No evaporation requirements;
- Increased lithium recovery;
- Increased production flexibility;
- Reducing residence time;
- No ground water disturbance; and
- Increasing the percentage of solvents that are recovered and reused.
Lithium demand is projected to rise from approximately 500,000 metric tons of lithium carbonate equivalent in 2021 to some three million to four million metric tons in 2030.i At the same time, surging electric vehicle demand has seen lithium prices skyrocket by around 550 percent in a year: by the beginning of March 2022, the lithium carbonate price surpassed $75,000 per metric ton and lithium hydroxide prices surpassed $65,000 per metric ton (compared with a five-year average of around $14,500 per metric ton).ii
Generally, direct lithium extraction (“DLE”) can be a driving force behind the lithium industry’s ability to respond to the expected demand increase more swiftly.iii DLE offers an opportunity not only to increase industry supply of lithium, but to reduce the industry’s ESG footprint and provide a lower cost method of extraction.iv
Evanesce was founded by Douglas Horne, who is the Chief Executive Officer of the business. Mr. Horne sought out an opportunity in response to the rise in single-use plastic products, and the mounting pressure that they have applied to the environment. The overconsumption of single-use packaging has been on the rise and they have become a contributor to climate change. Plastics, and microplastics specifically, have been polluting our oceans and affecting ecosystems that regulates our planet’s temperatures. As a result, Evanesce was founded to develop a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic packaging. Using a patented technology that considers strength, insulation and nesting capabilities, Evanesce’s products are being designed to be functional yet environmentally friendly by being 100% compostable and organic.
Evanesce collaborated with Haas/Buhler – an expert in food processing equipment – to develop and commercialize its patented technology. Today, its Molded Starch Technology produces 100% compostable packaging material. All of Evanesce’s packaging solutions are free from PFAS and BPA and they decompose into soil within 90 days. All Evanesce products have a shelf life of two years and are leakproof as well as heat resistant, thereby making them both microwave and oven safe. Currently, Evanesce has been issued three patents, has one pending patent, and has made 17 other patent claims. Products such as meal trays, meat trays, containers, and cups are expected to enter the market in early 2022.
The global packaging industry is expected to reach $980 billion in market size by 2022, while the green packaging solutions industry is expected to reach $245 billion within the same time frame. As climate change continues to be an issue that influences how people consume products, the need for alternative packaging solutions is growing. Evanesce has expanded its operations to a second manufacturing facility in Nevada to meet the increased demand of sustainable packaging.
Evanesce’s green packaging solutions are already in use by various leading foodservice companies, grocers, restaurants, and convenience stores. Products can be found in Whole Foods, Save-on, Chipotle, Safeway, Costco, and Loblaws, with more grocery and restaurant chains being added on a regular basis.
As Evanesce continues to grow, it is on track to achieve its goal of become a leader in the food packaging space. With its state-of-the-art technology, Evanesce has recently been recognized by CIO Coverage as one of the Top 10 Innovative Food Packaging Companies to Watch in 2021. Another one of Evanesce’s goals is to make single-use plastics a thing of the past. With consumer demand increasing for more environmentally friendly packaging, there is a push for industries to adopt more sustainable, greener, and cost-effective packaging solutions.

The company caters to people with food allergies and sensitivities as well as to those with restricted diets wanting something tasty.

As a conservationist, he has an entrepreneurial spirit and passion for animal welfare and has significant growth plans for the Sophie’s Kitchen brand, including but not limited to the annual doubling of sales volumes. Dr. Woodruff is committed to seeing plant based seafood alternatives come to the forefront of the mainstream food market.

What is Plant Based Seafood?
According to a report by The Good Food Institute, global demand for seafood is projected to be 30% higher than 2010 levels by 2030. As global populations continue to grow, the increased demand for seafood is expected to follow, which will continue to deplete the food stocks in the world’s oceans. This perceived inevitability provides an opportunity for plant based seafood alternatives, which can be produced more quickly and in a more responsive and responsible manner than conventional seafood. There are several efficiencies associated with supplying plant based seafood alternatives, including but not limited to locating production facilities closer to demand centers and only producing what consumers want, thus reducing the large amount of waste that is typically associated with conventional seafood production.
According to Nielsen, the traditional seafood market is worth US$15B, with fish accounting for ~50% and shellfish for ~33%. Therefore, capturing only 1% of the traditional seafood market presents a large opportunity for the plant based seafood industry. However, seafood is more difficult to replicate than other plant based meats, such as beef and poultry. So far, plant based shrimp, tuna, scallops and crab are available to consumers in the market, including the product offering by Sophie’s Kitchen. Given that the company’s plant based seafood products have started to emerge as a tasty and readily available option to consumers, it is working to expand its product portfolio to include other types of plant based seafoods.
Food technology will continue to pave the way for Sophie’s Kitchen be the leader in the increasingly growing plant based seafood market. To achieve this goal, Sophie’s Kitchen has entered several strategic partnerships to support its aggressive growth.
To date, Sophie’s Kitchen has been able to carve out a strong position within a niche market, while also being socially responsible and protecting the world’s oceans. According to the Plant Based Foods Association, the #1 driver of all food purchases is taste and Sophie’s Kitchen strives to make the best tasting, plant based, seafood alternatives for customers to enjoy, regardless of most dietary restrictions.
Sophie’s Kitchen is thriving in the plant based seafood market with products that have zero mercury content, no fishy smell, no concern of micro-plastics and offer a way for customers to counteract the overfishing that is currently affecting the health of the world’s oceans.
