In India, discovered a lithium deposit and were going to become a leader in the production of lithium batteries


In India, it was announced that in the near future the country could take a significant step forward in the field of energy and the development of electric transport. Such statements were made after the discovery of a lithium deposit about 100 km from Bangalore. The deposits are located near the village of Mandia.


According to the estimates of the representatives of the atomic energy commission unit, the deposit in the study area contains about 14 thousand tons of this metal.

If India starts developing this deposit, then it itself believes that it will be one of the leaders in lithium mining, joining such traditional suppliers to the world market as Argentina, Chile and Australia.

It is noted that India will be able to create its own large-scale production of lithium-ion batteries, batteries for electric vehicles, whose share is increasing every year in the world.

Today, China is the main supplier of lithium batteries to India.

However, experts in the field of geology note that Indian ambitions are too high against the background of the relatively small amount of metal found in the deposit. About 35 thousand tons of it are mined annually in the world. And in the mentioned Argentina and Chile, they are for the whole history The “fields” produced 1,7 and 8,6 million tons, respectively. Against this background, the Indian 14 thousand tons really look like an extremely limited supply.

However, in the Indian energy industry, it is noted that it is necessary to increase investments in exploration in order to obtain data on the possible presence of other deposits of this metal in the country.

    That is, now will be the "cadmium barrier" determining?
    He, in fact, has already been achieved.
    (Cadmium is used in the production of lithium-ion batteries, and its reserves / production are limited to even more lithium)

      I looked, in 2013 there were 6 main types of Li-ion batteries, 3 with cadmium, 3 without cadmium, now, most likely, more varieties

    The Taj Mahal should first be removed from the garbage, and that in Delhi it would not stink with sykels, and then you can rivet the batteries.

        Goa is the last place to judge India. It’s the same as judging Russia by Sochi.

    Sooner rejoiced. First you need to further investigate lithium in the country, and only then try to become a leader in its mining and production of products with its use. what

      And it’s better to do both silently.

    Yes, in the world plan this is good, but the residents of Mandia can already be hung up. Although, with such poverty, they will also rejoice. A small income due to health.

    So let them make batteries for their little fans, it should be enough for a while. laughing

    And I, sincerely sincerely, always believed that the country's energy sector, first of all, depended on the generation of electricity by power plants. Or do Hindus think that electricity is taken in batteries by itself? Though in lithium, even in lead. laughing

    Do we have any deposits at all? Or buy lithium?

      There is. Russia's share in the global lithium market is about 4%

    to mine lithium and organize production batteries - completely Different things. For the latter, you need to know the features of the technology, to have very high-tech equipment., And, most importantly, hands growing from where you need it. What Indians, unlike the Chinese, especially can’t boast
