Future of EVs depend on Cobalt

I just went through this great infographic describing the future of cobalt:http://www.visualcapitalist.com/cobalt-precarious-supply-chain/ 

Except of being a well told story I was curious on the impact for lithium ion batteries in different ways:

  1. What would be the impact in battery prices if Congo was not anymore the main source of cobalt?
  2. How can we argue with people who give arguments against batteries regarding child labour and low recyclability?
  3. How can we increase the recyclability of cobalt which seems to be very low?

 

Food for thought and I'm looking forward to your responses!

A more sustainable 2018 to everyone!
