Lithium is known as the energy metal of the new century, industrial MSG

Coolant in the nuclear energy industry: Lithium can be used as an ideal coolant and heat carrier in nuclear fusion and nuclear fission. A controlled nuclear fusion reactor uses only about 700 tons of metallic lithium as a heat carrier.

Raw materials for the production of lithium batteries: in the field of high-energy lithium battery manufacturing. The specific energy is three times that of nickel-metal hydride batteries and nickel-cadmium batteries, and twice that of lead-acid batteries.

Application in alloy manufacturing: Magnesium-lithium alloy is the lightest metal structural material among the magnesium alloys studied so far, and will have broader application prospects in the fields of aerospace and communications.

Used in metallurgical industry: Lithium is a kind of light metal, which is firmly combined with oxygen atoms. It is used as a deoxidizer in the process of industrial copper and nickel. Lithium can be used as a sulfur cleaning agent. Lithium can form alloys with various metals.

Application in the field of medicine: Lithium tartrate has a good effect on chronic rheumatism and acute arthritis, madness mental illness, hyperthyroidism, chronic ulcerative colitis, Ménière's disease, and lithium diuretic treatment.

Lubricating oil application: Lithium-based grease has good water resistance and good high-low temperature lubrication performance.

Ceramic application: It is used as a special glass with high toughness in the glass industry. It is used as a fluxing agent for ductile ceramics, ceramic coatings for metal protection and heat-resistant ceramic coatings.


Global demand for lithium carbonate is growing rapidly

---Lithium industry broke out

      Compared with traditional batteries, lithium batteries have larger capacity under the same volume, and have the characteristics of green production, use and recycling. Therefore, they have been widely used in the field of consumer electronics and energy storage products in recent years, and are favored by new energy vehicles. Market impact, power lithium battery development momentum is strong. Moreover, most of the new energy vehicles currently use lithium-ion batteries as the power source, and the cost of power lithium batteries for pure electric vehicles accounts for up to 50%, and its huge commercial value is also becoming increasingly prominent. Each electric vehicle battery needs about 50kg of lithium carbonate. According to the 13th Five-Year Plan, by 2020, only 250,000 tons of lithium carbonate is required for electric vehicles.
