Yes, Cobalt Mining is bad for the environment and bad for the people who live near these mines. No EV Owner denies this.
But the EV haters don’t mention 3 important facts regarding Cobalt
Mining Cobalt for battery cells that last 10-15 years is a one time process and is way better for the environment compared to extracting, drilling, transporting, refining Oil for 8 to 10 years during the life of a vehicle
Lithium-Iron-Phosphate Battery & Sodium Ion Battery Packs: 98+% of the Indian electric car market in 2023 uses LFP packs and two wheelers, three wheelers will use LFP and Sodium-Ion battery packs. These packs use ZERO Cobalt and ZERO Nickel
The petrol heads are not in a position to take any sort of moral high ground on the Cobalt issue. This is due to the fact cobalt is used to extract sulfur during the refining of crude oil. Good luck recycling that Cobalt into anything.
All links are in the description. The next time you encounter misleading articles or videos about Cobalt Mining, you may send these links to educate them better!
