TOKYO -- A Canadian startup proposing a new method for refining lithium says it sees growing interest from Japanese companies hoping to lessen their dependence on China as source of the critical mineral for batteries in electric vehicles.
As demand for electric vehicles and utility-scale energy storage batteries skyrockets, the world will need to rapidly expand the lithium supply chain. Canada is positioned to excel in the production and refining of critical minerals as it holds the 6th largest lithium reserves in the world.
Mangrove Lithium is proud to be recipients to this year’s BC Centre for Innovation and Clean Energy (CICE) Open Call for Innovation. The support from CICE has been instrumental in our progress of developing an electrode manufacturing process in B.C. for our Clear-Li electrochemical technology.
