About ‘Lithium: The Global Race for Battery Dominance and the New Energy Revolution’:
“Lithium: The Global Race for Battery Dominance and the New Energy Revolution” travels from the salt lakes of the Tibetan plateau, where Chinese government–linked companies extract lithium, to Argentina, Chile and Bolivia, which hold the world’s biggest resources of the mineral. It reveals superpowers’ struggle to secure strategic supplies, and the astonishing efforts of lone-wolf inventors and entrepreneurs. The book also explores the environmental impact of lithium extraction, the limits to battery electrification, and lithium battery recycling as the way forward.
