“Lithium’s Role in the Energy Future”

Welcome to the future, powered by lithium.

Lithium is in the headlines almost daily because of its critical role in the batteries that will power the future – but much of the information that is accepted as common knowledge is misleading, or even incorrect. In this talk, Emily Hersh will explain the role of lithium in batteries – but also what other minerals and technology are necessary to make a battery. She will talk about lithium as a raw material – and what kinds of lithium deposits there are in Latin America. She will explain the battery supply chain and the lithium market, focusing on why lithium is not a commodity and the importance of producing lithium chemical compounds that can be used to make a battery.
