What is


Lithium: a short history

The mineral petalite (which contains lithium) was discovered by the Brazilian scientist José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva towards the end of the 18th century while visiting Sweden.

Three Major Markets for Lithium

The primary markets for lithium carbonate are consumer electronics (laptops, iPads, iPods, tablets, cellphones), grid-storage solutions and electric and hybrid vehicles.

The Internal Combustion Engine vs. electromobility

There is a major transformation slowly picking up the pace in the global automotive industry.

A little bit of battery history

Lithium ion batteries are a relatively recent innovation. Scientists and engineers first began working with lithium applications in the 1970s.
