Today, the rapidly developing electric motor market is driving the development of lithium-ion battery market because it faces unprecedented demand rises.. With the market gongs, the price of lithium-ion batteries required for the production of lithium-ion batteries increased from $ 15,000 per ton, increased twice.
. Lithium material Extraction of primary manufacturer LilacSolutions CEO Davidsnydacker, said that the current cost of lithium materials accounts for 10% of lithium-ion battery production costs. According to the data, the global battery manufacturing capabilities will be over 2021, reaching 278 giga every year.
. AvicenneEnergy Company said that the world’s demand for lithium is expected to turn two in 2025. The market demand for electric vehicles has exceeded consumer electronics and became the largest user of lithium-ion batteries.
. Obviously, the battery industry needs more lithium materials, and its material is from lithium glow or salt pool..
Although there are currently a large number of lithium material reserves, it is necessary to build a new mine to 6 to 10 years, while the lithium-ion battery factory can operate in two years.. “From the perspective of history, the lithium material market has always been the market of small-scale special chemicals, and there is no too much attention or innovation.
. “SNYDACKER said. “But as suppliers work hard to keep up with the rapid rise of electric vehicles, the lithium-ion battery industry is rapidly changing.
“Lilacsolutions in Auckland, California hopes to reduce the cost of lithium material used in electric vehicle batteries, hoping to supply cell-level lithium hydroxide at cost below 3,000 US dollars per ton. The company’s CEO Snydacker said that the electric vehicle market promotes the scale development of the lithium-ion battery industry, most of the production of lithium-ion battery profits has been squeezed, and people have begun to face increasing material costs..
According to the survey, the cost of raw materials accounts for 50% to 70% of the cost of lithium ion battery.. “Lithium ion electric cost may fall to $ 80 per kilowatt, but in addition, people are still paying attention to lithium and other raw materials.
. “SNYDACKER said. The lithium mine industry is now a turbulent industry in the desert of the salt pool and lithium glow sediments are the source of lithium materials.
. The highest quality lithium salt pool is located in the Atacama desert of Chile, where the solar power industry in the world also has the best solar resources in the world..
Today, most lithium roses come from Australia, followed by my country.. In the 1990s, the US hard rock industry lost the market dominance.
But higher prices are pushing Northern Carolina, Utah, California and Arkansas recovery. According to the data investigated by mining.com, the United States only promotes 2% of the 2017 global lithium-ion batteries in the 2017 in a mine in Nevada.
. In the production prediction of the industry. Morgan Stanley expects the supply of lithium materials by 2021 to be excessive, the price will drop by 45%.
The relevant mineral companies do not agree to Morgan Stanley, the reason is to deal with the complexity of bottlenecks and lithium mines.. Roskill expects the battery-level lithium material market to continue tight.
CanaccordGenuity expects new supply to enter the market, while warnings the gap between predictions and reality between lithium material supply. Woodmackenzie believes that the salt pool has become an important source of lithium materials..
SNYDACKER said that the routine extraction of lithium from salt water resources is based on evaporation pool, and these pools have a high construction cost, start start and difficult to manage.. He added that 99.
9% of brine consists of water and other low-level salts (important sodium). Its processing handle should be a large amount of water and chemicals to extract. “All other impurities must be removed before only lithium chloride solution.
“He said. FMC companies and other companies have developed lithium extraction techniques based on protonic membrane and alumina absorbers. Mgxminerals at Canada has been tested from the special film of the lithium from the wastewater.
EmmafoehringerMerChant, GTM, pointed out that when lithium from the salt pool, it will use up to 500,000 gallons of water, which is usually in the arid desert.. She pointed out that “lithium-based batteries also have raw materials such as cobalt, nickel and graphite, which further enables supply chain to comproach.
“LilacSolutions has 90% lithium recovery LILACSolutions claims to develop a lithium extraction process based on ion-exchanged lithium extraction process, which can achieve 90% lithium recovery during less than 6 hours.. And the evaporation pool is required for two years, only about 50% lithium recovery rate.
. LilacSolutions’ goals is to become a mining technology company, an important construction, design, and operation of lithium-extracted ion exchange devices..
SNYDacker said, “US, Argentina and Chile have dozens of lithium resource developers know where to find brine, but they lack the extract. “.
