The Shortest Distance Between the Mineral and the Battery

October 2, 2018 – Eric Vengroff, Financial Analyst, Graphite Daily Notwithstanding the cancellation of the rebates for electric vehicles in Ontario, Canada, and the very public trials and tribulations of Tesla and its colorful CEO growth in sales of electric and hybrid electric vehicles is likely here to stay. As the […]

Graphene Could Soon Make Your Computer 1000 Times Faster

By Dom Galeon Writer, Futurism In brief Researchers from several universities have teamed up to develop a radical kind of transistor. Instead of using silicon, the team used graphene to build a logic gate series that uses less power but could work 1,000 times faster than current ones. Graphene at it again […]

Graphene assembled film shows higher thermal conductivity than graphite film

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have developed a graphene assembled film that has over 60 percent higher thermal conductivity than graphite film – despite the fact that graphite simply consists of many layers of graphene. The graphene film shows great potential as a novel heat spreading material for […]

Battery metals industry dependent on ‘flavour of the month’

Bertie Strydom

BY  SIMONE LIEDTKE  – http://www.miningweekly.com JOHANNESBURG  – With nearly every forecast predicting higher battery use in the years ahead, especially lithium-ion batteries to power new and existing technologies, demand for its component metals may be dependent on what some title “the flavour of the month”. Battery metals include cobalt, nickel, manganese, graphite […]

Alternatives to Cobalt, The Blood Diamond of Batteries

BY ELLEN AIRHART – Wired.com WHEN JOHN GOODENOUGH created the first lithium-ion rechargeable battery at Oxford in 1980, he needed some cobalt. Experiments had already established that the metal is energy-dense, perfect for small batteries that need a lot of power.1 So Goodenough made the cobalt himself, heating the precursors at very high temperatures. […]

Technology To Improve Lithium Ion Battery Materials

Dan Blondal, CEO of Nano One Materials, shares the company’s plans to build a full scale facility allowing for approximately 3000 tonnes a year of cathode material. Nano One is developing technology to improve the way lithium ion battery materials work. We take the raw materials, the building blocks, which […]

Simon Moores with Lessons Learned from Lithium

Simon Moores, Analyst, Benchmark Mineral Intelligence with Lessons Learned from Lithium Lithium has got good lessons for the other minerals because it’s a bit ahead of the curve in its use in batteries compared to graphite. Lithium back in 2004 had its major use in ceramics and glass, that was […]
