What are lithium batteries?

A lithium battery is a type of rechargeable battery technology that leverages the unique properties of lithium, the lightest of all metals.

Lithium batteries possess metallic lithium as an anode material. They are quite unique when compared to other batteries because of their high cost per unit and high energy density.

A lithium battery operates on the principle of intercalation and deintercalation of lithium ions from a positive electrode material and a negative electrode material, with the most common type being the Lithium-ion battery.

Alkemy Capital Investments plc (LON:ALK, FRA: JV2) is focussed on developing projects in the energy transition metals sector. Alkemy’s wholly-owned subsidiary Tees Valley Lithium (TVL) is developing a state of the art lithium hydroxide plant at Teesside, UK. TVL is Europe’s largest independent and sustainable lithium hydroxide producer.
