    Kuvaus‘As the popularity of lithium-ion battery increases, it has become clear that we need alternatives to obtain sufficient raw materials in an efficient manner and with minimum exploitation of our natural resources,’ comments Rodrigo Serna-Guerrero, an expert in mineral processing and recycling at Aalto University in Finland. ‘By using mechanochemical oxidation, the use of potentially hazardous leaching media for the extraction of lithium can reportedly be avoided. This work shows a positive step forward in the search of alternative sources of raw materials with low environmental impact and sheds light on the need of innovative ideas to improve recycling technologies.’
