Lithium, a chemical element that takes the form of a soft, white, alkaline metal is highly reactive and can provide large energy density for its weight. Hence why lithium is used in many products and industrial materials, such as medicine, heat resistant glass, aluminum production and lithium-ion batteries. 

Lithium-ion batteries power many of our most loved devices – your phone, laptop, tablet and electric cars all use lithium-ion batteries. Needless to say, the demand for lithium has increased.
