Trending -Lithium Ion Technology – Introducing Five Lithium Companies of the World

Lithium, a metal which was not a very exciting commodity through much of its history with mankind, has seen a meteoric rise in its importance in the past thirty years like no other known material in human history. Its unique electrochemical and metallurgical properties make it suitable for high performance energy storage applications underpinning its high energy density to weigh ratio with assurances on high durability and nontoxic operations and disposal. The mining and production of lithium along with the production of batteries derived from it have also seen a meteoric rise during the period. A new era, however, is about to dawn on this metal as electric vehicles catch the fancy of the human race, as more and more governments around the world and companies increase their spending to promote the spread and use of this new technology.
