Powering the resource-to-recharge revolution

Motivation

Mission

Urgency: Exponential EV demand will require unprecedented quantities of lithium. Grid-scale storage will require orders of magnitude more. The US produces almost none of its own lithium.

Discovery: Technology breakthroughs catalyzed by deep understanding of natural and produced resources

Opportunity: Unconventional domestic resources have sufficient lithium to satisfy demand for a century. Unlocking them will make domestic lithium highly cost competitive with the right understanding of 1) the resources 2) extraction technology.

Leadership: Environmentally responsible empirical analysis across the lithium resource spectrum

 

Action: Getting solutions from bench to battery quickly through hands-on training, active collaboration, technology incubation, and IP transfer
