This mysterious new powder could revolutionize electric cars!

Although the entire automotive industry is in the process of making the transition to all-electric, we are still in the midst of a development and research phase. Today, we are going to introduce you to a new powder that could revolutionize the electric car market.

No, the word revolution is not usurped in this case. Indeed, this new powder is presented by some as the new “or noir”. Also called “black mass”, this powder is composed of metals such as cobalt, the nickel and the lithium.

A very good solution for recycling

In the near future, if we continue in this direction, the entire vehicle fleet will only be made up of 100% electric vehicles. It will therefore be necessary to mass produce batteries knowing that they are made of metals which will become very rare over time. Battery recycling will therefore become a major issue of the sector in the very near future. And that’s where this “black mass” comes in!

How do we obtain this new black gold?

There are two ways to obtain this black powder. Firstly, it is possible to recover it during the recycling of used batteries. In fact, it is obtained by crushing and shredding batteries and battery cells. However, the quantities of black powder recovered using this technique are not very important. Most of the “black mass” actually comes from waste from the battery manufacturing process.

For what use?

It is a powder made from rare metals. These latter can therefore be used again in the production of new batteries and therefore significantly lower the demand for these metals in the future. According to Bloomberg, recycled materials will represent in the future 15 % of the global supply of lithium, 11 % in nickel and up to 44 % in cobalt by 2030.

Huge benefits!

As you can imagine, this powder is of great interest to automobile manufacturers, because it could prove to be a lifesaver in the future.

This black powder is more virtuous for the planet since it depends entirely on recycling and not mining. She would fill part of our needs for rare metals for the manufacture of batteries. A very good thing knowing that these cause very many human devastation in the world.

Today, the Chine to control the majority of the battery market. By reusing this powder to create new ones, European manufacturers would get out of this situation. addiction facing the Middle Kingdom.

As mentioned above, the electric car market is still in the face of development. Although the market seems to only revolve around this theme, large-scale production of electric vehicles remains very recent. Great technological advances can be expected in the future.

One thing is certain, we have not finished talking about revolution.
