Potential Bottlenecks Of Materials In Future Green Technologies

2018-10-05T06:22:38+08:00

Every year, the global consumption of raw materials increases. In the 19th century, only a few elements were extracted and used. Today the whole periodic table is practically used by society, and many of the considered “critical” or “rare” elements are used in green technologies. Such technologies shall be the best answer to reduce

MANGANESE. IS IT THE FORGOTTEN BATTERY MINERAL?

2018-07-10T03:41:02+08:00

Whilst manganese is commonly associated as being reliant on steel consumption and steel market forces, this paradigm could shift over time as battery technology demand grows. With battery technology still in early stages of development, there is currently no clear winner as to which battery will obtain market dominance. Tesla currently uses two differing
