Emission Reduction

Climate changes on our planet are the main challenge for development in the 21st Century. Passenger transportation is currently the main reason for oil consumption in the world, the CO2 emission source that has grown the most.

Lithium batteries, also known as li-ion batteries, are designed to store large amounts of energy and to be permanently recharged. For several years, they have been used for electric cars and other means of transportation, reducing emission contamination. Currently, SQM meets around 35% of the world´s lithium demand, promoting an industry that generates less impact on the environment.
