Graphite One 在 EV 材料供应紧缩之前正在建设美国第一个石墨源

对于所有关于汽车电化原材料的讨论目前都围绕锂,而对石墨的关注还不够多;石墨应该可以说也是一种重要的矿物,甚至可能更重要。 事实上,石墨是电池负极材料的理想选择,它负责在充放电过程中存储和释放电子。由于其天然的强度和刚度,石墨是一种出色的热和电导体,不仅可以满足电动汽车电池的电压要求,还可以满足固定式电池的电压要求。 如今,石墨是电动汽车电池中重量最大的成分,占电池的 45% 或更多。每个电池单元消耗的石墨原料几乎是锂的四倍,是钴的九倍。 毋庸置疑,石墨对于电动汽车供应链来说是不可或缺的。彭博新能源财经预计,在电动汽车电池热潮改变交通运输行业的背景下,石墨需求到 2030 年将翻两番。 国际能源署 (IEA) 将时间延长了 10 年,预测石墨需求的增长在 […]

Renforth 准备在锂行业的大重组中进行伟晶岩勘探

智利上周发布的锂国有化重磅炸弹对北美锂矿商来说是个好消息。这些矿商可能会变得更加重要,因为它们是制造电动汽车和卡车以及储能用锂离子电池所需的白色金属的潜在供应商以及一系列消费电子产品。 这一发展还可能进一步给电动汽车制造商带来压力,他们正争先恐后地确保锂供应。 加布里埃尔·博里克总统上周四宣布,他的政府将把该国的锂产业收归国有,国家计划与公司合作以促进当地产业的发展。据矿业媒体报道,国有铜业公司 Codelco 最初将与合作伙伴签订新合同,之后将由一家全国性锂公司负责。 此外,Codelco 和另一家国有矿商 Enami 将在目前有私人项目的地区获得勘探和开采合同。已经在智利的两家锂矿商 SQM 和总部位于美国的 Albemarle 将继续运营,直到他们的合同到期。 […]
