Battery Technology to Diversify in Next Decade

For the longest time, lithium ion batteries have been utilized for stationary energy storage systems and vehicle electrification. However, new opportunities for other battery chemistries that don’t rely on nickel, cobalt or lithium are being created, as lithium ion’s production supply chain comes under growing scrutiny. The need for energy storage solutions that are more affordable and suitable for the storage of energy for long durations also affords substitute energy storage technologies opportunities to grow in the market. While sodium-ion batteries may be particularly suitable for the electric car market, experts believe that alternative battery chemistry deployment will be especially…

Asteroid Nereus Holds Precious Metals Worth Billions

Space mining is the exploitation of minerals from bodies in outer space. This type of mining has been heralded as a new way to obtain minerals without the environmental risks associated with land mining. This is in addition to revolutionizing the commercial space economy by creating employment opportunities for private astronauts and robots. Many believe that space mining is the future because it can facilitate the exploration for and extraction of precious metals and rare earth minerals from near-Earth asteroids. However, little has been done to advance the idea. Recently, an egg-shaped, near-Earth asteroid with a 330-meter diameter passed near…

Newly Launched Uranium Fund Sending Shockwaves Through Nuclear Fuels Market

The Sprott Physical Uranium Trust was established roughly six months ago and is the only publicly listed fund in North America to invest in physical uranium. Currently, the Canadian-listed fund holds about one-third of the global annual supply of uranium, which is set to increase as time goes by. The trust’s establishment and significant growth has been sending shockwaves through the nuclear fuels market, which has spurred a rally in the heavy metal this year. Reports from Sprott show that its assets have risen in value to reach $1.9 billion, which has forced the product to increase its financing limit…

MIT Researchers Develop Potentially Superior Flow Battery

Researchers at MIT have created a zinc-manganese dioxide flow battery for the storage of energy for long durations, which may be more affordable in comparison to other energy storage technologies. This Zn-MnO2 flow battery has been designed using a new electrode that is made from a mixture that contains diffused manganese dioxide particles and a lot of carbon black. Carbon black is an additive that is electrically conductive, which was added to give it an electric punch as well as pigment. The researchers stated that the compound reacted with zinc plate or a zinc solution, which enabled efficient conversion of…

Metals Focus Forecasts Silver Shortage Moving into 2022

A leading independent precious metals research consultancy expects silver to benefit from the rising price of gold early next year. The consultancy firm, Metals Focus, reported this in its recently released 2021/2022 annual report, which focuses on investment in silver, gold, palladium and platinum. Director of Silver and Gold at Metals Focus, Neil Meader, stated that the innate high volatility of silver meant that the metal could probably outperform gold during early 2022. However, the consultancy added that the metal’s prices would probably drop after this, especially when the Federal Reserve gives a more clear guidance on the timing of…

Silver Institute Reveals Silver Demand Has Surged to Levels Last Seen in 2015

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on most elements of physical supply and demand was significant, with a number of major silver mining countries being affected by the lockdown restrictions, which led to a decline in the supply of silver. However, in a recently released report, the Silver Institute stated that the international demand for silver is set to increase to 1.02 billion ounces in 2021. This figure is a 15% increase from last year’s figures as well as the first time global demand for the metal has exceeded a billion ounces since 2015. The forecast is a slight drop…

Chinese Researchers Develop Redox Flow Battery with 99.98% Retention Capacity

Redox flow batteries are electrochemical energy storage devices, which convert chemical energy into electrical energy via reversible oxidation. Researchers have designed an aqueous redox flow battery with a positive electrolyte made from an organic molecule known as Tempo. Tempo is an electro-active aminoxyl radical with a high potential for energy and easily reversible oxidation states. The chemical compound, known by its (CH2)3(CMe2)2NO formula, is comprised of a bright-orange solid that has a free and stable radical nature. The compound can be stored for a long time and has different applications in molecular biology and organic chemistry. This is in addition…
