BATTERIES ARE MADE FROM A VARIETY OF MATERIALS. HOWEVER, ONE CRITICAL METAL, TUNGSTEN, IS REVOLUTIONIZING THE GLOBAL BATTERY INDUSTRY AS WE KNOW IT.
You might have heard the name tungsten, but you might not know what it is and what it's used for. Northcliff Resources is an expert in the critical metal, and we are highlighting its potential uses as a component in battery technology.
Our findings explore the capabilities of tungsten and propose different ways in which the critical metal can be used to harness electricity and store power. The findings discuss the Sisson Project, a Northcliff Resources tungsten-mining project in New Brunswick that is working to become a supplier of tungsten to North American, European, and Asian markets.
The world is in the midst of a battery revolution. Groups around the globe are working tirelessly trying to develop the cutting-edge technologies needed to ensure our sustainable long-term energy future. Studies have shown that tungsten could play an integral part in powering next-generation batteries. At Northcliff Resources, we are trying to expose the groups working on battery technology to the many energy storage possibilities that tungsten presents.
Tungsten is a rare metal occurring naturally on Earth, and it’s been found in Canada. Traditionally, it has been used in filaments and alloys. More recently, however, its application has shifted to batteries, thanks in large part to its ability to accept more electrons than conventional materials and withstand repeated heavy charging cycles. This durability makes tungsten a highly efficient and cost-effective energy source.
Many companies are already using tungsten successfully in their technology. One company doing this is Nyobolt Limited. Nyobolt produces lithium-ion batteries with record power density and ultra-fast charge capabilities. By integrating tungsten into their anode systems, they were able to create batteries that performed far better than other lithium-ion technologies.
As we have highlighted in our articles, the applications of tungsten-based energy sources don’t stop there. Agricultural operations use the technology to power machinery. Solar storage panels and wind turbines also utilize the material due to its electrical storage capacity. Many medical compounds also rely on tungsten.
By powering the global battery revolution through the critical metal tungsten, the wide-ranging applications will continue to develop at promising speeds. Through the Sisson Project, we are working to harness the critical minerals that have the potential to serve as the building blocks for our future green and digital economy.
