The lithium market situation and current technological developments - such as developments in the recycling of lithium-ion batteries or technical alternatives in a post-lithium phase are being searched. The focus of the research is on resources/reserves, production quantities and the specific production costs and thus the buildability (cut-off value). Data on the local environmental impact of lithium production and resource use - such as water consumption and energy use - are also collected and analyzed. The key data determined here will be an essential part of the Life Cycle Assessment.
