Rio Tinto declares maiden ore reserve at Jadar; major potential source of battery-grade lithium carbonate

Green Car Congress

Jadar, one of the largest greenfield lithium projects in development, would be capable of producing approximately 55 thousand tonnes of battery grade lithium carbonate, as well as 160 thousand tonnes of boric acid (B 2 O 3 units) and 255 thousand tonnes of sodium sulfate as by-products per annum. The campaigns successfully produced unrefined lithium carbonate, boric acid and sodium sulfate at target recoveries without the build-up of detrimental species.

Researchers call for integration of materials sustainability into battery research; the need for in situ monitoring

Green Car Congress

They include the desire to increase the driving range of more modestly priced electric cars from 150 to well over 500 km, and the need to lower the cost and provide maintenance-free technologies for grid applications. A nearly threefold decrease of the stored kWh price to €200 per kWh at the pack level is predicted in the next 10 years, driven at least in part by both the large volume production and the realistic prospects of a second life for electric vehicle batteries.
