Clean energy technologies boom the demand for battery metals

Lithium-ion

Of all the clean-energy technologies set to boom in the coming decades, none will put a strain on battery metals. They account for about half of the projected growth in minerals demand over the next two decades in a rapid decarbonization scenario.

‘Rethink Mining’ – innovation initiatives in exploration, underground mining, surface mining, processing, and the environment

collaboration mining

“Collaboration Mining” will be a significant business intelligence (BI) trend in 2022. Because new technologies are constantly being developed all around us, it isn’t easy to gain a competitive edge by securing a monopoly on a particular technology or provider. We can pool our strengths and experience, exchange ideas with each other, and overcome individual […]

No Large Scale Agro-Mining Due To Ignorance Of Scientific Improvements

Agro-mining

Metal-rich plant farms are springing up all over the globe, promising a greener and less damaging alternative to mining for rare minerals. Agro-mining is the practice of cultivating plants that absorb metals from the soil. This method may detoxify poisoned areas and collect battery components like nickel and cobalt without contaminating the surrounding environment. There […]
