Exxon's Lithium Investment for Future EV Demand
【Summary】Exxon Mobil is drilling for lithium in Arkansas to become a major U.S. supplier for electric-vehicle batteries by 2030. This move is aimed at repositioning the company for the growing demand for EVs, as lithium is a crucial component in battery production. The U.S. is trying to reduce its reliance on China, the global leader in lithium processing.
China, known for its leadership in processing lithium, is taking significant and risky steps to secure raw lithium from Latin America and Africa. In response to this, the United States is now working on developing its own lithium supply to reduce its dependence on China. A photo illustration by Jamie Leventhal accompanies this news article.
