September 16, 2016 — Jack Lifton in an interview with InvestorIntel Sr. Editor Fred Cowans discusses recycling automotive components, particularly batteries. Jack will be representing InvestorIntel in the Toronto Mines and Money show and speaking at 3:20 PM Monday, September 26th on energy storage presentation.

In this interview, Jack explains that it is very important to recycle electric vehicle battery materials as we do not produce enough lithium, cobalt and spherical graphite to make even a fraction of the vehicles that Elon Musk’s Tesla plans to manufacture in the year 2018 alone.

Fred Cowans: Jack Lifton is the senior editor at InvestorIntel. Jack you certainly don’t need any introduction to our audience. Welcome via Skype to the InvestorIntel studios here. You’re going to be in Toronto soon for the Mines and Money show.

Jack Lifton: Yes.

Fred Cowans: It’s September the 28th. The exact dates are the 26th to the 28th. What are you going to be talking about?

Jack Lifton: I’m going to be talking about recycling automotive components, particularly batteries, but also anything that can be recycled containing technology metals and materials.

Fred Cowans: That’s stuff you’ve been writing about for some time.

Jack Lifton: Yes.

Fred Cowans: Do you want to give us some themes that you’re going to be talking about within that?

Jack Lifton: Yes. I’m very surprised that there’s been so little talk and action in North America about recycling lithium-ion batteries for vehicle use, very large batteries, when in fact the governments of both Canada and the U.S. mandate…. to access the complete interview, click here

      Peter – you commented before I hit delete on IP address 24.141.183.***. See what people like “waclaw” do not understand is that your IP address is one heck of a valuable piece of data….and note that I have protected it.

      Normally, in case anyone else wants to misbehave proceeds is that we check to see how often the IP address has been “crawling” around our site. In this case, “waclaw” is a one timer, which means this person is intentionally acting vitriolic due to envy or some other equally meaningless reason which includes that we do not quote them.

      Our new site in December will insist that anyone commenting identify themselves. Thanks for making a valid point Peter, and 24.141.183.*** — has been sent to our programmer to simply block. Ah technology…..everyone is leaving fingerprints.

    That’s a cheap shot from the cheap seats. If you have a problem with Jack, spell it out, or, do what he did and use your real name, with real contact information. Hiding is no way to have an intelligent conversation.

    When are you speaking Peter? I thought I saw Green Swan Capital on the schedule?

    Hi, Tracy. Yes, Green Swan will also be at the Battery Show for Mines& Money on Monday. We’ll be sharing our thoughts on the global cobalt shortage. Hope to see you there.

    Hi Tracy:
    Which of the panelists that you interviewed had a fund that focused on cobalt?
