As prospect of unregulated deep-sea mining looms, scientists sound the alarm
A high-stakes effort to hash out environmental regulations governing mining of the seabed in international waters ended without agreement last week, after negotiators missed a July deadline. The lack of progress by the International Seabed Authority (ISA) raises an alarming prospect, observers say: that mining operations targeting metals needed by the electric vehicle industry could commence without effective regulations in place. “The ISA has just passed into uncharted territory,” says Matthew Gianni, a policy adviser for the Deep Sea Conservation Coalition who attended the meeting in Kingston, Jamaica. It’...

How volcano magma could help meet green economy ’s demand for metal
Metals could be extracted from magmatic brines while producing geothermal power at same time, say scientistsOne hurdle in the transition to a low carbon future is the huge increase in demand for metals associated with renewable energy technologies. By 2050, it is anticipated lithium production will need to have increased by tenfold, cobalt by sixfold and silver by half as much again. Even the most efficient recycling system cannot meet this demand, and conventional mining practices are energy-intensive and environmentally damaging.Some mining companies are looking to the deep sea, but as well as being technically challengi...

John Goodenough, The Scientist Who Helped Revolutionize Lithium-Ion Batteries, Dies at 100
John Goodenough, a pioneering researcher who helped transform lithium-ion batteries, died at the age of 100 on Sunday. His inventions that helped develop modern computers and commercialize lithium-ion batteries touched every person’s life on the planet. Yet few knew him and his work didn’t bring him riches, though it did earn him a Nobel Prize very late in life. None of that bothered Goodenough, as he kept developing better batteries almost until the end of his life. His decades of work and innovation are now a cornerstone in the race to decarbonize the world’s vehicles and energy system. [time-brightcove...
