Battery Insiders podcast discussion on lithium refining

Tune in to Battery Insiders at 25:54 to hear the discussion about how Mangrove's electrochemical process takes brine straight to battery-grade lithium, eliminating the need for that second plant and saving lithium and battery producers millions.

Mangrove’s CEO and founder, Saad Dara, was recently a guest on the CleanTechnica Cleantech Talk podcast to chat about all things lithium.

Mangrove is on the 2023 Global Cleantech 100 List

Mangrove was one of 15,753 nominations for the Cleantech 100 list, making our selection an assuring validation of our technology and mission.

From Bottleneck to Boom: Why Canada Needs Localized Lithium Refining

Find out why Canada needs localized lithium refining and how it will benefit the country and its future energy plans.

Unlocking feedstocks for battery-grade lithium

The lithium battery production bottleneck will block the adoption of 350 million electric vehicles by 2040 unless supply chain constraints are removed.

We won’t wade into the merits of either argument because, either way, the underlying facts remain that the “sharp correction” Goldman predicts is a function of market volatility caused by a brittle and over-concentrated supply chain. The volatility here is because we have rising demand, but an uncertain supply. For the market to achieve a stable foundation price, high or low, it must achieve a stable and reliable supply chain.

Decentralizing lithium supply chain

Media and analysts currently predict a lithium supply chain pinch that is going to be worsened by China's and Russia's near-monopoly on refining. With emerging technology like Mangrove's, companies will not be reliant on foreign processing and will be able to supply the expected demand.
