Raw materials for green energy – columns

Japan wants to show the way at the Olympic Games in 2021: The Olympic flame will burn with hydrogen.

Made from water using solar power, hydrogen technology will burn the Olympic flame. Because climate protection goals are among the central issues worldwide.

Hydrogen not only makes vehicles drive, it can also provide electricity and hot water for homes. One raw material that the new technology needs is platinum. Because the necessary catalyst contains platinum.

This trend-setting metal has, for example Sibanye-Stillwater ( – – in its large platinum and palladium projects in South Africa and the USA. At the same time, the company is one of the major gold producers.

Another technology that is already under development is electromobility. Driven by government subsidies, the number of electric vehicles populating the streets is increasing. Of the 274,303 cars registered in October 2020, 23,159 were electric, a market share of 8.4 percent. And that is around five times more than in October 2019 in Germany.

The electric cars run on lithium-ion batteries. These need the coveted lithium for a high energy density. This has about Millennial lithium – – in his projects, which score with the best battery quality. The company’s two lithium projects are located in Argentina.
