Will geothermal lithium meet our sustainable energy needs?

Efforts are underway to find new ways to sustainably source lithium – an element that is key to the planet’s efforts to shift to a zero-emission future. Lithium is crucial in the production of critical technologies such as lithium-ion batteries and computers. Key projects trying to source the element sustainably include:

  • A project in Cornwall, England plans to extract lithium from geothermal waters and give a sustainable push to the country’s efforts in its transition to green energy
  • A lithium drilling and production program in California at the Hell’s Kitchen Lithium and Power project
