2023-09-14 Black Mass Matters! The New Black Gold

The black mass is the concentrated lithium and other metals left when lithium EV batteries are recycled into their parts. This black mass is then processed along with other raw materials to make new batteries. There are these Chicken Littles who say that EV batteries are too expensive, then contradict themselves by saying the EV

Australian needs to stop exporting coal and fossil fuels and start ramping up their mines to meet the demands for lithium, copper, manganese, etc. Australian Mining — Can It Power All The New EVs?

2022-04-25 Statevolt To Build Battery Plant In So Calif.

Nice, but it will take a few years. It will extract lithium from the brine of the geothermal plant at the Salton Sea.

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

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

My replies to article cited by an “electrical engineer with 34 yrs experience”. << 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is written with false information (e.g. li-Ion batteries cannot be recycled), the reference used is at least 8 years out of date, and the most telling is the last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
