- Natural graphite is found in two commercial varieties –crystalline (flaky) graphite and amorphous graphite.
- The incorporation of low-carbon emission technologies would require the extraction of large quantities of minerals.
- The world would require 25-times more graphite by 2040 relative to the 2020 level, under the sustainable development scenario.
The world is in dire need of a rapid energy tansition in order to limit the rise in global temperature. This transition cannot be driven without harnessing renewables like wind, solar, tidal, geothermal energy. In addition to this, electric vehicles (EV) have also been playing a significant role in curbing the emission levels.
