Joe Lowry and Peter Hannah will also be appearing at the Fastmarkets 15th Lithium Supply and Battery Raw Materials 2023 in Las Vegas. Peter will moderate a panel discussion entitled, ‘Lithium Supply: Are we heading into surplus or shortage?’
The discussion will focus on:
- How do we rationalize lithium supply and demand numbers?
- Can we physically build the equivalent of five lithium mines a year for the next eight years to hit that demand number?
- Could technological innovations expedite, change or disrupt the expected supply demand balance of lithium as a commodity?
