$FYI – Lead Acid Vs. Lithium Ion Batteries

http://www.altenergymag.com/article/2017/08/lead-acid-vs-lithium-ion-batteries/26928/

This article is really about a new lithium ion battery formulation, “Lithium LiFe stands for lithium iron phosphate, and it’s the newest revolution in rechargeable home battery systems. While standard lithium-ion batteries are a big step up from lead-acid batteries, LiFe takes it even further. “

https://seekingalpha.com/article/4106081-morgan-stanleys-cobalt-report-mirrors-analysis-teslas-supply-chain-risks?uprof=46&isDirectRoadblock=true

Note; I haven’t throughly read this but a quick read there is a discrepancy in battery recycling between the author and Morgan Stanley. The author says battery recycling doesn’t exist, Morgan Stanley, and American Manganese $AMYRF say it does. The author may be correct in that it will take sometime for recycling to ramp up and impact the battery market.

$FYI – PNNL helps lead grid modernization with new DOE projects

Note; IMO this is much needed, and way pass due, with reports of possible hacking and EMF attacks by high altitude nuclear weapons. That said I would think that the use of more storage batteries might be recommended even subsidized to promote proliferation.

FYI – Lithium Brine Miners There are three Lithium Brine miners that all are pursuing a different method of removing the lithium from the brine. The old way of doing it was evaporation as in producing sea salt. If anyone has ever seen the Morton Salt evaporation ponds in the south San Francisco Bay they are huge. The salt water is moved one pond to another till all the water is gone. Then large equipment scoops up the salt puts in a huge pile. It is very time consuming and takes up to 18 months to end product. It is… Read more »

This article is really about water which is all too often neglected and taken for granted. Good clean drinking water is not getting more abundant the recent drought in California not to mention the lead contamination in Flint, Michigan may just be the beginning. As such I think Clean TEQ has issued a wake up to investing water. Clean TEQ and MGX Minerals (in my Lithium Brine miners post) both offer the ability to… Read more »
