Mining the green economy (Part 2): LiBTec

It is commonly recognized that the lithium-ion battery industry is poised to grow exponentially over the next decade and with it the need for advanced materials with qualities specific to this technology. At this time last year, the National Research Council Canada (NRC) discussed the need for precompetitive and collaborative R&D activities in Canada in the feature article titled Mining the green economy: Working with lithium and graphite miners to strengthen Canada's energy storage opportunity.

In response to this need, in the summer of 2017, the NRC proudly launched the Lithium Ion Battery Technology Industrial Research and Development group: LiBTec. This multiparty research group aims at developing the Canadian supply chain in graphite and lithium materials for lithium-ion battery applications at a critical time in the evolution of the technology. Not surprisingly, Canada is uniquely positioned to be a world leader in this market.
