According to reports, Ola Kaellenius, director of Daimler, who is responsible for R&D, said that the automotive industry is moving toward making high nickel electric car batteries.
The high cost of high-cobalt batteries has been driving manufacturers to adjust battery formulations for electric vehicles to reduce the use of cobalt and increase the use of nickel.
Each electric vehicle battery uses 8 to 12 kg of cobalt. More than half of the cobalt supply each year comes from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Kellerius said that car manufacturers are also trying to improve the operating range of electric vehicles by testing the ratio of nickel, cobalt and manganese in batteries.
