    GM Secures Long-Term Lithium Supply and Cathode Active Material Supporting Long Term EV Growth

      Those that think GM is just teasing with EVs as ICE will last forever are in for a wakeup call with the latest long-term contracts.

    GM has struck not once but twice this week with Livent and with LG Chemical. 

    Livent has signed a multi-year sourcing agreement with GM to supply battery grade Lithium Hydroxide extracted at the Livent South America brine-based operations. The lithium hydroxide is used in making high performance Ultium battery cathodes resulting in higher mileage EVs. This contract has two goals achieved, until a North American processing plant comes online, the lithium extracted will be shipped from South America, over time it will transition to bringing raw ore to America for 100% processing and a commitment of supply allowing GM to achieve their goal of 1 million EVs yearly production by 2025 and more beyond that year.

    The Livent contract compliments GMs long term plans by adding supply to a longer-term supply contract with LG Chem where LG Chem has agreed to supply GM more than 950,000 tons of CAM over the next 8 years supporting production of 5 million EV autos.

    LG and GM will explore the localization of CAM production in North America by the end of 2025.

    Jeff Morrison, GM VP, Global Purchasing and Supply chain had this to say:

    “This agreement builds on GM’s commitment to create a strong, sustainable battery raw material supply chain to support our fast-growing EV production needs,” “LG Chem has demonstrated technical expertise, high-quality and mass production capabilities of cathode active materials over the last decade. At the same time, this agreement demonstrates GM’s commitment to strong supplier relationships, and compliments our many other recent EV supply chain announcements.”

    GM continues to sign and grow their contractual commitments secured with strategic partners for all battery raw material in supporting EV production based on the Ultium Platform and battery packs.

    • WOW, that is crazy, wonder what happened the first time as that was a hard bounce. Need a full inspection on that plane after that hit.
    • Usually one does not pull out a desktop HD to transport it but packs and moves the whole desktop computer. If you are wanting to remove the HD to transport it, you need to ensure it is in an Anti-static bag to prevent electrical discharge that can scramble the data in worse case scenario. Depending on size HD can weight from just a couple of OZ to 1lb.  Question for you, are you just thinking of putting these HD into a new computer or just taking them over separate from the existing desktop system and installing them back in again? If your just thinking of transporting the desktop I would recommend keeping the drive in the desktop and packing the whole unit securely in a box with packing material for protection. If your wanting the data on the drives, I would recommend buying a proper USB drive, copy all the data off the drives and then you can wipe the drives and donate the computers to Goodwill for a tax write off.
    • The site clean-ups on C&G have been nice and look cleaner. In the process, it appears they even purged that one warning point I got for some heavy handed arguing with ocnblu back in 2009.
    • This was on my homepage.   This is possibly the weirdest go-around I've seen on video.  It was Lufthansa's big bird (latest version) at LAX.  (Leave the sound on) https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/moment-lufthansa-plane-s-touch-and-go-landing-caught-on-live-stream/vi-AA1nysOo?ocid=socialshare I was on one major go-around about 20 years and, it too, was on an older Lufthansa 747 going from Munich to SFO to connect up to Portland. He was still some 200 feet off the ground when he announced it, the engines started purring strongly, the plane started climbing, and the go around from my window showed San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, then on down south next to Stanford, and then back up over San Francisco Bay to land.
    • Tech help needed prior to going in to Office Depot or other store to inquire ... or conducting research and spinning my wheels: I have 2 HP Pavilion desktops ... one is circa 2019 and the other is circa 2009, and it still works.  They are boxed up. Questions: 1.  If I needed to get hard drive carrying cases, how does one go about sizing the one they should buy? 2. I have never seen one before, but I'm assuming the construction of the case is thick and tough enough to protect the hard drive, yes? 3.  How much do hard drives in typical household HP Pavilions weigh and are they easy to remove so they can be transported? THANK YOU!
