The transition to green energy requires improvements and changes to battery technology. The storage of increased energy in batteries has resulted in technology that makes use of metals not commonly used in the past. Lithium is one such element that is the focus of much interest due to its use in battery chemistries.
The analytical methods required for a particular resource type are often unique. ALS offers analysis products for all mineral types with detection levels ranging from super-trace methods applicable for exploration, through to high grade samples. Decades of experience analysing samples from across the globe have resulted in technical proficiency and client support that distinguishes ALS in the commercial geochemical analysis sector.
ALS offers a wide range of methods that are suitable for nearly all geologically derived samples and analytes. Our client services groups can advise you on the methods that are applicable for your specific needs.
