One of the biggest criticisms of EVs is that they aren’t as green as you might think due to the CO2 emissions from their lithium-ion batteries. These occur during lithium extraction and during the battery manufacturing process.

However, new research by means of Minviroa company specializing in the life cycle analysis of raw materials has discovered that an emerging battery technology can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of an EV: solid-state batteries.

They promise to cut battery emissions by nearly two-fifths.

The analysis compared an NMC-811 solid-state battery — one of the most promising chemicals under development — to current lithium-ion technology.

Both types use lithium to produce electrical energy and they have an anode (the negative terminal of the battery), a cathode (the positive terminal of the battery), and an electrolyte, which helps transfer ions from the cathode to the anode and vice versa.
