Solar and wind are playing a greater role in power generation, leading to hundreds of gigawatts worth of new renewable energy generation. However, without effective energy storage techniques, natural gas and coal are needed for times when weather conditions aren’t favourable. Large-scale storage is becoming instrumental if society is to shift away from a world dependent on fossil fuel, and will define the next decade.
When discussing climate change, renewable energy is usually the first and most important topic that comes to mind. With a list of changes that could be implemented to mitigate the effects of rising temperatures, obvious renewable energy sources such as solar and wind don’t emit greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, that contribute to global warming.
This report discusses the rising market demand for lithium and the land reserves of lithium is going to be depleted by the end of 2080. That’s why there is a need to find some alternative. As rejected brine seawater contains a lot amount of lithium, there is a need to extract that lithium from the seawater. The process description and working of the electrochemical cell are explained in this report. A comparison of different techniques to extract lithium is also provided and the best possible techniques so far are discussed which was practically performed by the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and some results of this experiment have also been shared.
4 weeks before COP26 in Glasgow. The belief that the world leaders will actually act has long vanished. But one thought comes up. Would it not be great if the climate crisis would be solved by an alliance of people, institutions and companies, that are willing to take actual steps toward a carbon-free economy and world?
The solutions are there. All! All over!
The fight against climate change does not depend on the availability of solutions, but on the willingness and political will to identify and implement new solutions.
