Changing Battery Chemistries & Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) with John Passalacqua and Isobel Sheldon

The Lithium-Ion battery is the fulcrum on which the energy transition hinges. However, its chemistry continues to evolve. The Nickel-Cobalt variant has led the charge in EVS, primarily due to the singular focus on range. However, cost, raw materials, safety and utility has led many manufacturers towards Lithium Iron-Phosphate (LFP) batteries to meet the mass adoption needed to reach decarbonization goals. In this episode, we do a deep dive on battery attributes, chemistries and markets. And if LFPs will dominate, what does that mean for the battery supply chain and the mineral producers its needs. Our guests are Isobel Sheldon OBE, a leading authority in batteries & EVs and John Passalacqua, CEO of First Phospate Corp (PHOS:CN). First Phosphate Corp is positioned to be a leading supplier of the Phosphate needed in this evolution within the revolution.
