Scenario 2050: Lithium and Cobalt might not suffice
Lithium and cobalt are fundamental components of present lithium-ion batteries. Analysis by researchers at the Helmholtz InstituteUlm (HIU) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) shows that the availability of both elements could become seriously critical.
