Argentina set on becoming a world leader in lithium production

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Argentina set on becoming a world leader in lithium production” – below is their description.

Lithium is becoming a hotter commodity as people turn more and more to renewable energy.

Argentina, with its large lithium reserves, wants to supply the world.

But many worry this will come at too great a cost to the environment and some scientists are looking at alternative methods of extraction.

Lithium is used in the batteries that power electric cars, laptops, phones, and many other devices.
