Lithium supply will dry up

Posted on Tuesday, January 30 2007 @ 19:41:16 CET by

The Inq reports that scientists believe that our supplies of lithium may dry up if car makers are going to use lithium batteries for electric cars:
In his newly released white paper entitled, "The Trouble with Lithium", he points out that the vast majority of world's supply of lithium carbonate, is only found in China, Chile, Argentina, and Bolivia. He estimates total world lithium metal reserves at just 6,200,000 metric tons.

In chat with EV World, Tahil said that while lithium salts production could double in the next few years, the industry can't produce enough lithium to build the hundreds of millions of large-format batteries needed to power the electric cars and plug-in hybrids of the future.
