Episode 16: Will sodium-ion batteries soon replace lithium & cobalt?
We all have this image in our heads. A vast white man-made salt lake is blighting the environment in South America's Atacama Desert. An often-cited prejudice is that the supposedly clean electromobility and battery technology of the western world knowingly accepts that there is immense environmental pollution in the country triangle of Argentina, Chile and Bolivia. Our guest Prof. Dr. Maximilian Fichtner.
Dipl. Geol. Michael Schmidt from the German Raw Materials Agency DERA also examines the raw material lithium from a different perspective: What does production, mining and trading actually look like outside the Atacama Desert? And: How will the price of lithium develop in the future?
