The challenge of acquiring sufficient quantities of cobalt, a base element used in lithium-ion batteries, is an ongoing threat for their production ramp-up, says Tejs Vegge from the Department of Energy Conversion and Storage at Denmark’s Technical University. Most li-ion batteries derive their high energy density from the energy discharge process facilitated by application of a cobalt oxide cathode. The batteries contain more cobalt than lithium. ...
