Growing Demand for E-vehicles Stimulating Production of Lithium Ion Batteries


Opportunities abound in manufacturing and recycling

  • With increases in consumer demand and government regulations, production of e-vehicles is accelerating around the world
  • As a result, battery manufacturers are joining forces with car manufacturers and other technology sources to increase production and enhance the efficiency of lithium ion batteries and other battery technologies
  • Growing demand for Li batteries and the emphasis on sustainability have created the need for more efficient battery recycling to produce higher purity lithium, nickel and cobalt
  • With the growing demand, significant opportunities are available for raw material suppliers, battery manufacturers and recyclers
