The Lithium Market:
The future is electric
In little more than a decade, lithium has gone from being a rather staid industrial mineral used principally in ceramics and glass applications to a shiny technology metal vital to the development of alternatively fuelled vehicles.

Where will supply come from? What about alternative metals?
