Lithium mining is growing rapidly as its demand accelerates due to its application in batteries. The element is found in dry places that require thousands of liters of water for its extraction. With the increasing demand for elements and the increasing use of water needed for its extraction, R&D is in place to find better alternative methods. For example, in February 2020, funding of approximately $ 20 million through Bill Gates was supplied to Lilac Solutions, a lithium mining technology company located in the United States. The investment was announced in February 2020. According to the firm, its ion exchange technology is twice as efficient compared to the current extraction process and requires a fraction of the time.

Recycling lithium is a complex process; However, with the increasing penetration of lithium-ion batteries, demand for lithium could exceed supply. Therefore, researchers are focusing on the extraction and recycling of lithium through various new technologies. Lithium compounds are extracted from batteries according to individual methods and steps. The steps are divided into pretreatment and extraction steps; while extraction is again classified as hydrometallurgy, pyrometallurgy and electrochemical extraction. Despite the growing importance and development of different recycling technologies, less than 1% of lithium is currently recycled.

Over the past decade, the increase in the use of lithium-ion battery storage has driven their prices down by over 80%, leading to improved energy storage and paving the way for commercial viability. electric vehicles. Government regulations and subsidies aim to develop clean energy; thus, energy storage systems represent a huge opportunity for investors. However, the expensive raw materials needed to produce energy storage systems can remain a critical factor for investors.

New clean energy companies have attracted significant investment during COVID-19, according to the International Energy Agency. Start-up venture capital (VC) investments declined slightly in the first half of 2020. However, these investments recovered quickly, with record investments starting in the third quarter of 2020.
