Vanadium Is the New Super-Metal

The Electric Revolution: Move Aside Lithium, Vanadium Is the New Super-Metal for Bigger Batteries
 
The lithium ride was a great one. Cobalt, too. All they needed was their Elon Musk moment, which came in the form of the Nevada battery gigafactory. The next Elon Musk moment won't be about lithium at all-or even cobalt. It will be for an element that takes everything electric to its revolutionary finish line: Vanadium.
 
The one moment that will change everything … and that moment may be near.
 
Vanadium is lithium on steroids-wildly bigger and the only way forward from here. We may have already reached the peak of our electric revolution through batteries with lithium.
 
We need bigger batteries, preferably the size of a football field-or 20.
 
That's vanadium-Element 23. The answer to our issue of scale.
 
"It's no longer a technological maybe," says Matt Rhoades, president and CEO of United Battery Metals, a Colorado vanadium explorer sitting on one of the few known sources of the next big battery metal in the entire United States.
 
Rhoades should know … his company is behind the discovery that hopes to put America definitively on the vanadium map. UBM's Wray Mesa Project in Colorado has a mineral resource base estimateindicating resource of around 2.7 million pounds of vanadium-not to mention all the uranium they already know is there for additional upside.
 
"Vanadium is here, and lithium is scared because the $13-billion energy storage market has already found its new poster boy," Rhoades told Oilprice.com.
 
China, followed by Russia and South Africa, have the largest reserves of Vanadium, which has become a strategic raw material in electric energy technology
 
The Moment of Truth
 
Indeed, Rhoades is an expert at timing.
 
The worldwide battle for vanadium is ramping up …
 
The Chinese have already had their Elon Musk moment …

Excellent post.

 

I'll look at the details.

 

Regards.

Title:   Improvement in magnetic field properties of vanadium-gallium superconductors by enhancement of spin-orbit scattering Authors:   Tedrow, P. M.Meservy, R. Affiliation:   AA(Massachusetts Inst. of Tech., Cambridge), AB(Massachusetts Inst. of Tech., Cambridge) Publication:   Final Report Massachusetts Inst. of Tech., Cambridge. National Magnet Lab. Publication Date:   08/1984 Category:   Solid-State Physics Origin:   STI NASA/STI Keywords:   Gallium, Magnetic Fields, Magnetic Properties, Orbits, Scattering, Superconductors, Vanadium, Crystal Defects, Crystal Lattices, Transition Temperature Bibliographic Code:   1984mit..reptR....T



Abstract

The high-magnetic field characteristics of the practical superconductor vanadium-gallium were improved by enhancing the spin-orbit scattering rate in this material. To this end, thin films of V-Ga of various compositions were made by electron beam codeposition. Third elements with high atomic number Z were added to these films during deposition. High-Z impurities are expected to be most effective in increasing the spin-orbit scattering rate. The elements added were Nb, Ta, Sn, Pt and Pb. These impurities were added at a level of about one percent.

Interesting stuff grog.

 

I suppose some of this could enhance some of my work where superconductivity has become an issue on several occasions.

 

I'm not an engineer of this ilk but had some ideas I discussed on Pravda once or twice.

 

Maybe the resident lunatic Asperate could help. This was supposed to be his field in solid state physics.

 

So much to do such little "time"

 

Next time Asperate should think twice before spouting on such BS that may come around and bite him on his ass..

 

The approach you cite grog, may have more value than thought of up to now.

Vanadium steel alloys have been around since the 1950's or sooner.
