What is going to power our cars, asks Danny Bradbury | Technology | The Guardian
The most interesting thing I can draw from this is that there might be a time in the near future, 1-3 years time when supply of refined Li isn't keeping up with demand. Tha again will probably have a very bad effect on price. There is plenty of Li.
Most articles act like Lithium is like oil/gasoline in that it's a non renewable energy source that we burn up.
I believe there is plenty of lithium, it's just a matter of ramping up production because demand is going to start getting pretty heavy very soon.
Good point Vfx, I would add get serious about getting the recycling efficiency up to above 90% as well asap. As you say,we don't use up any litium, we just need to reuse what we have. And how many grams does a full car battery use of litium anyway, I bet like everything else the most mass is taken up by support and packaging for the cells not the active ingredients.
