Lithium batteries: Far more widely recycled than second-hand statistics imply

Lithium-ion batteries are far more widely recycled than many people think, while China and South Korea are already leaders of the emerging circular economy of lithium, a report commissioned by the Swedish Energy Agency has found. An often-cited figure is that “5% of lithium-ion batteries are recycled”, when in fact this statistic, taken originally from […]

Lithium-ion giga units mooted

ITI Aayog’s proposal aims to give thrust to adoption of electric vehicles To push the adoption of electric mobility in the country, government think-tank NITI Aayog has proposed the establishment of giga factories in India for the manufacture of lithium-ion batteries in the next couple of years. The recommendation is part of the Aayog’s much […]

Australian firm partners with Indian power company to develop India’s first lithium refinery

Australian mining company Neometals has entered into a deal with Indian power conglomerate Manikaran Power to jointly fund a feasibility study to set up India’s first lithium refinery. The refinery, if established, would process ore from the Mount Marion mine in Western Australia to produce battery-grade material for electric cars. The two companies have agreed […]

Chile’s Lithium Export Price Plunges

The export price of Chile’s lithium carbonate has plunged to US$10,655 per ton on average, the lowest since last Nov. and down 17.6% year-on-year and 9% sequentially, according to Chilean customs. SQM, the world’s second largest lithium supplier, notes that there is no sign for the price decline to end in the near future. Lithium […]

What’s Driving The Electric Vehicle, Lithium, And Battery Markets In 2019?

Summary EV sales are growing rapidly as battery costs fall, automakers are introducing more electric models, and consumer preferences are evolving to favor cleaner vehicles. Yet, concerns remain as global auto sales broadly decline, China EV subsidies are reduced, and substantial amounts of new lithium supply begin to come online. Although global auto sales slowed […]

Flexible textile battery may power wearable devices

Scientists have developed a thin, highly flexible textile lithium battery that could safely power wearable electronics used in healthcare monitoring, smart clothes and Internet of Things (IoT). The lightweight Textile Lithium Battery, developed by researchers at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, has high energy density and excellent flexibility. The battery, which is less than 0.5 […]

Lithium price: Battery capacity of electric cars doubles from last year

Battery metals tracker Adamas Intelligence says that in March 2019, battery capacity deployed worldwide in battery electric cars (including hybrids) nearly doubled from the same month last year. The Dutch-Canadian research company, which tracks EV registrations and battery chemistries in more than 80 countries, says 9.76 GWh of passenger EV battery capacity was deployed globally […]

Rise In EVs Leading To More Than 70% Demand Surge Of Lithium YoY, Says A New Report

As the transportation requirements shift towards electric drivetrains globally, the need for batteries powering these EVs is increasing correspondingly. A crucial element used in these batteries is lithium, which, as per new reports, is being deployed at a much faster rate now than ever before. Adamas Intelligence, a Dutch-Canadian research firm responsible for tracking battery […]

New Electric Vehicles Contain Much More Lithium

Battery metals tracker Adamas Intelligence says that in February 2019, 76% more lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) was deployed worldwide in batteries of new electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid electric passenger vehicles compared to the same month last year. The Dutch-Canadian research company, which tracks EV registrations and battery chemistries in more than 80 countries, says […]
