    A very good read. Many are unaware of some of the problems associated with Lithium, Cobalt especially, and Nickel. Coal, Oil and gas extraction have been a blight on the environment for years, not to mention oil spills and the resultant air pollution from burning fossil fuels, but the link shows that even moving to better technologies, there is no free ride in the energy equation. It also demonstrates that despite good practice to minimise environmental damage and degradation, there are still charlatans who will try and mine at the lowest capital cost. This is why Australian hard rock is so important. It presents the best alternative to extract lithium at the cheapest environmental cost.

    Obviously the industry has a long way to go regarding recycling technologies.
