                    More Than a Pretty Color:

         The Renaissance of the Cobalt Industry


                      Samantha   DeCarlo   and Daniel  Matthews

       Abstract

       Demand  for cobalt-a major input in the production of lithium-ion batteries
       (LIBs) used in electric vehicles (EVs)-is growing due to recent technological
       advancements and government policies designed to promote the use of EVs. This
       has led major automakers, battery manufacturers, personal electronic device
       companies, and their suppliers to attempt to secure stable supplies and develop
       new sources of cobalt throughout the world. Moreover, the rising demand for
       cobalt has led to global supply constraints, higher prices, and renewed drive in
       battery materials research for potential substitutes for mined cobalt.
