2021-06-21 Australia Supplying Lithium And Nickel

Said, “Each EV has about 5000 dollars (Au?) In it.” Well, the battery pack is about a hundred dollars US per kWh or about $7500.00 per vehicle. It’s hard to believe that the raw material costs make up well over half of the cost of an EV battery pack. Then he said Denholm noted that

2021-06-04 Scientists Harvest Lithium From Seawater

Scientists have cost-effectively harvested lithium from sea water. This also produces hydrogen and chlorine and can use the leftover brine from desalination plants. It requires a lithium lanthanum titanium oxide (LLTO) membrane. Very interesting! https://electrek.co/2021/06/04/scientists-have-cost-effectively-harvested-lithium-from-seawater/ Another link https://www.electronicsonline.net.au/content/power/news/electrochemical-cell-extracts-lithium-from-sea-water-1381153360

2021-02-13 Article Talks Trash Re: EVs and Lithium Batteries

My replies to article cited by an “electrical engineer with 34 yrs experience”. https://returntonow.net/2021/02/09/the-spiraling-environmental-costs-of-lithium-batteries-could-rival-fossil-fuel/ << Ned Goldston Thanks for the link to the article. The article is written with false information (e.g. li-Ion batteries cannot be recycled), the reference used is at least 8 years out of date, and the most telling is the last

2020-11-17 Tesla Batteries And Supply Constraints

The manufacturing of Electric Vehicles and grid scale storage are constrained by the amounts of batteries that can be supplied by the battery makers around the world. The early Tesla EVs used the ubiquitous 18650 lithium ion cells, something like 6000 per vehicle. In order to reduce costs and weight Tesla went to the larger

2020-09-17 How Long Will Lithium Supplies Last?

This article paints a doom and gloom picture of the lithium supply. Lithium is the 25th most common element on earth. It’s not that rare. According to Wikipedia it’s as common as chlorine. It says the seawater has 230 BILLION tonnes. So the supply is not going to run out, it’s just going to get
