In 2017, IVL, the Swedish Environmental Research Institute, issued a report saying the manufacture of lithium-ion batteries was responsible for 200 kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions for every kilowatt-hour produced. That figure has been seized upon by fossil fuel advocates as proof that electric cars are not nearly as “green” as electric vehicle advocates say they are.

This month, IVL updated its findings from 2017 in light of current experience and found carbon emissions from making lithium-ion batteries are much lower today than they were two years ago. The biggest factor in the decline in emissions is the source of electricity used in the manufacturing process. Today, carbon emissions from battery manufacture range from a low of 61 kilograms per kilowatt-hour to a high of 106 kilograms per kilowatt-hour...

Batteries: beyond Lithium

https://www.scientificamerican.com/custom-m...beyond-lithium/
QUOTE
If green energy is ever to supplant fossil fuels, portable power needs to become more efficient and cheaper.

Yet as electronic goods become both more powerful and smaller, batteries are struggling to keep pace. In large part, that’s because it’s increasingly difficult to pack ever more energy into lightweight lithium-ion batteries while also making them less expensive....

Why Tesla getting into the mining business makes sense - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrmj7l8GqvA

This is about more control over the entire production process from beginning to end

Today date Tesla relies on Panasonic to source raw materials, refine raw materials, produce battery cells in their facilities, then pass them off to Tesla to make battery packs.

We know that Tesla has been making moves to produce their own batteries with acquisitions of Maxwell and Hibar.

The last remaining piece of the puzzle is sourcing raw materials and the refinement of them.

Nickel is the single largest raw material.

Nickel, cobalt price: Electric car sales are tanking, but metal use spikes
Frik Els | December 5, 2019
QUOTE
A bright spot for the mining industry, however, is the fact that the average nickel, cobalt and manganese use per EV battery continues to rise despite weakening market conditions, according to Adamas.

In October 2019, the average EV sold globally contained 22% more nickel, 19% more cobalt and 15% more manganese than the same month last year, helping suppliers offset the broader slowdown in EV sales and average battery capacity growth globally:

Overall, nickel has continued to outperform the market due to the ongoing shift from low-/no-nickel cathode chemistries, such as LFP and NCM 111 [equal parts nickel-cobalt-manganese], to higher-nickel varieties, such as NCM 523, 622, 811, as well as the latest generation of NCA used in the Tesla Model 3.

Additionally, cobalt has continued to outperform the market due to the rising popularity of cobalt-bearing NCM cathode chemistries in China, which continue to glean market share from the once-ubiquitous (and cobalt-devoid) LFP cathode alternative.

And in similar fashion, manganese has continued to outperform the market due to the ongoing shift in China from manganese-devoid (or manganese-minimal) cathode chemistries, such as LFP, to higher-manganese varieties, such as NCM 111, 523, 622 and 811.

LG Chem and GM to invest $2+B for Ohio battery factory, Cadillac EV on tap
Charles Benoit
- Dec. 5th 2019
QUOTE
In July it was announced that LG Chem was working on a potential new billion-dollar US battery cell factory for electric cars. Today in a security filing in South Korea, LG Chem confirmed that investment, and that GM will invest another billion.

Reuters reports that the location is expected to be in the area of Lordstown, Ohio, where GM (pictured in Detroit) recently sold its factory to an EV startup affiliated with Workhorse. This follows news earlier this week that Piedmont Lithium received an important federal permit to proceed with its lithium mine in Gaston County, North Carolina — the second in North America. Looks like Interstate 77 will be America’s hot new lithium corridor.
