Deep Sea Potatoes. The Future Of All Battery Powered Devices Including Vehicles

For a sustainable future, it’s widely accepted that the global population needs to move away from fossil fuels. While electric looks to be a suitably green alternative, it comes with one major flaw: there just aren’t enough metals to make the shift

What if we could access the metals needed to make batteries some other way? One possible alternative is to move mining to the deep sea, where precious nodules known as manganese tubers can be found laying on the seabed as loosely as pebbles on the sand.

90 percent of the world’s exploration contracts for nodules are in the Clarion-Clipperton Zone, which represent less than half of 1 percent of the global seafloor,” TMC PR and Media Manager Rory Usher told IFLScience. “But this represents the largest source of manganese, nickel, and cobalt, anywhere on the planet and that dwarfs everything on land by many orders of magnitude. There are enough metals in situ at two of the sites that would satisfy the needs of 280 million cars,

climate change faggots now have to live with deep sea mining !! which is far worse than oil extraction.


Following closely

It’s basically a big arse vaccum cleaner sucking the nodules on to the ship from the ocean floor , leaving alot of suspended sediment interfering with marine life ! smaller island nations have partnered with explores and have started and there already issues .
Hizi mambo za zero carbon ni kelele everything is compromise you want batteries without oil be ready for some serious onshore and offshore mining

Erikana,mlifika wapi na sodium batteries

Sodium batteries are still in their infancy but as Lithium gets scarce Sodium, will take over. We have unlimited amount of Sodium in Sea water.
Extraction ndio energy intensive.
