Recent developments in the development of sodium-ion battery technology could provide a solution to the material crisis in electrical mobility transitions.
Too much sodium is bad for your health as we have as advised by medical practioners and doctors also advise patients to go for low-sodium salts. However, it is sodium that can be the protector of the environment in green energy transition. By far, the majority of batteries used in electric vehicles are of various lithium-ion chemicals. While lithium-based batteries take advantage of the light basic weight of lithium, there are significant problems around thermal stability and, most importantly, major problems around resources, as lithium is used not only in batteries but also in combination with other metals and minerals. They have their own resource issues.
