2021-06-04 Scientists Harvest Lithium From Seawater

Scientists have cost-effectively harvested lithium from sea water. This also produces hydrogen and can use the brine from desalination plants. Very interesting! https://electrek.co/2021/06/04/scientists-have-cost-effectively-harvested-lithium-from-seawater/

2021-05-20 Hydrogen Pro’s, Con’s, And Why’s

From FB group TSLA Shareholders Doug Halkenhauser You said, “…[hydrogen] is worse on every single metric.” Am I supposed to believe you, or the other major car makers Toyota, Honda and Hyundai??? It’s obvious that your claim is being ignored by the companies that are important. If you were to talk to those tens of

2021-05-18 Tesla Vs Conventional Cathode Production

There is speculation among viewers about what is going to be put into the ‘landfill pit’ being built next to the building at Giga Texas. Some say it’s a landfill; others think it’s too shallow for a landfill. I was reading the following article and noticed that the conventional cathode production has a lot of

2021-05-17 Li-Ion Competitors: Flow, Zinc, Sodium Etc.

This good blog has many links to other articles about competitors to Li-Ion AKA LIBs. But near the end it explains why LIBs may be very difficult to compete against. It points out that as more renewables make up the grid, there is more demand for medium (8 to 24 hours) storage and long term

2021-05-15 Million Mile Battery Is Not Moot Or Irrelevant

From FB group TSLA Shareholders De Bits Said, “…analysts … are focused on million mile battery which is moot if not irrelevant.” To you, Mr. De Bits, it may be irrelevant because you are apparently clueless about how important the lives of batteries are going to be for the V2G – vehicle to grid –

2021-05-07 Relithiation To Make Old Batteries Like New

If the old cells were made easier to take apart and reassemble it would be helpful. I think that someday the battery makers may do what Eagle Picher did for batteries on spacecraft. There is a container of electrolyte inside the battery. To activate the battery a small charge blows the electrolyte out of the

2021-04-26 Tesla Battery Production And Resource Supply And Demands

From YT comment to Cleanerwatt With 2 GFs coming online this year and expansion in Shanghai, there will be less constraints on battery production. But the increased demand on lithium, nickel and other battery components is likely to cause costs to rise, thus negating any savings in manufacturing. This is a problem that will be

2021-04-02 Limits On Total Numbers Of EVs Made

From FB TSLA group I’m not sure this chart is predicting realistic numbers. As a TSLA shareholder I hope it will be that way. But if we look at the amount of raw materials that will be needed for the hundreds of millions of batteries in the future, there is a point where obtaining enough

2021-04-01 Tesla Can’t Make Enough Batteries

There are doom and gloom predictions that there will not be enough raw materials for building EVs, especially the batteries. Article https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/news/2019/june/we-need-more-metals-and-elements-reach-uks-greenhouse-goals.html Pete Hahn The demand for oil will drop as more vehicles become Electric. Hydrogen will be used for heavy transport – rail, ship and probably heavy trucks. There is a constraint on electrifying

2021-03-06 SK Stole LG’s Battery Secrets – USITC

The US Trade Commission has said that SK has misappropriated 22 of LG’s battery secrets. The US will ban SK from importing for ten years. LG wanted to negotiate a settlement but SK is begging Pres. Biden to veto the decision. This is interesting because there is high demand for batteries for EVs and it’s
