Tees Valley Lithium’s lithium hydroxide refinery, projected to produce 96,000 metric tons per year, aims to be all-electric. John Walker, the company’s CEO, says they are doing all they can to eliminate fossil fuels and embedded carbon in their process. Meanwhile, Kanthal has readied itself and its products for the transition to a new lithium-ion battery supply chain.

Aluminum is essential to modern society and stands to play an important part in future sustainable applications. As the industry seeks to reduce its climate impact, electrification is one solution that could help reduce emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. So says Pernelle Nunez, Deputy Secretary General and Sustainability Director at the International Aluminium Institute.

To drive the world’s energy transition, we need at least a hundred times more battery capacity than we have today. However, for batteries to be part of a greener future, we need to rethink how they are sourced, manufactured and recycled. So says Y. Shirley Meng, a professor of molecular engineering at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering.
