  • Automakers move into lithium mining space

    Shane Lasley, Data Mine North|Updated Sep 13, 2022

    General Motors, Stellantis, and Tesla moving further up battery supply chain With the batteries powering the electric vehicle revolution demanding more lithium than miners can produce, the price of this lightest metal in the universe rocketed more than 1,000% over the span of two years. This has prompted automakers such as Tesla and General Motors to become more directly involved in the mining and refining of the lithium-ion battery namesake. "Price of lithium has gone to... Full story

    Upcycling old cathodes for new batteries

    Shane Lasley, Metal Tech News|Updated Jul 10, 2022

    To steer away from using expensive and oft controversial cobalt, electric vehicle and lithium-ion battery manufacturers have brewed up new recipes with higher percentages of more abundant nickel and manganese for their newer generation cells. "Modern lithium-ion battery cathode chemistries have rapidly evolved to having less cobalt and more nickel or manganese materials, which does not reflect the cathode chemistries of older batteries approaching their end-of-life," said...
