InsideEVs reports about another potential breakthrough with Lithium Technology in China. The "Lithium Universe" is already located in China and now this country moves very fast into the post carbon world economy by taking over Lithium Battery space and adopting and developing the best Lithium Technology available for Electric Cars.
International Lithium And Ganfeng Lithium Move Mariana Lithium Brine Project Forward In Argentina.
Mr. Kirill Klip, President, International Lithium Corp. comments, "We have always viewed Argentina as a favorable location for mineral exploration and development and have been able to operate in a mutually beneficial manner with the local people and governments. The results of the recent elections have managed to give foreign corporations greater confidence in the future of business and mineral resource development in Argentina. We welcome the change and look forward to working with the newly elected officials and advancing our Mariana lithium brine project in cooperation with our strategic partner, Ganfeng Lithium. Security of lithium supply is becoming more important as witnessed by recent price increases in China, all in advance of the completion of new battery production facilities announced by Tesla and other manufacturers. We continue to build a vertically integrated lithium business with Ganfeng Lithium to meet the future demand of lithium products that will address the increasing demands for lithium raw materials and chemical products."

International Lithium Receives Notice of License Renewals for the Avalonia Lithium Project, Ireland
"Mr. Kirill Klip, President, International Lithium Corp. comments, "The Avalonia project joint venture, fully funded by strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium Co. Ltd., ("GFL"), could be of strategic importance to the European Union should a sufficient resource be identified. Clean fuel technologies for motor vehicles are becoming increasingly important to the European Economic Community to tackle climate change and the air pollution crisis in major urban areas. Lithium technology will play a major role when it comes to providing batteries for communication devices, electric vehicles and utility storage systems. Renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind power will also benefit from lithium battery technologies and become more commonplace as the problem of intermittency will be addressed providing steady power from these sources 24/7."

Brighton New Energy Bus With 1,000 km (600 miles) Range?
Brighsun New Energy, one of the many Chinese companies engaged in the manufacturing of electric buses, stated an unbelievable record of 1,004 km (623 miles) covered on a single charge by a prototype Brighsun Avass Touring Coach from Melbourne to Sydney in Australia.
If that's true (we are struggling to find more data), that would be twice the range of any other EV bus record (even considering potential low-speed driving).
Brighsun New Energy's could be using some range-extending tricks in the prototype that would not be found in real-world use (or production buses), so we are cautious about the 1,000 km range bus, as well as 1-hour fast charge.
On the other hand, One Step Off The Grid said that the 1,004 km range is officially certified:
"The launch, held at Yuroke, one hour north of Melbourne's CBD, by Australia-based company Brighsun, showcased a total of four prototype full electric buses ranging from high range capacity route service passenger buses to touring coaches.
Federal environment minister Greg Hunt attended the launch, and confirmed that the bus was officially certified, to international standards, to drive a huge 1004km on one charge."
"The buses run on a high performance lithium-ion battery combined with proprietary eMotor, battery management and a regenerative braking system.
Brighsun CEO Allen Saylav, also a director of the Society of Society of Automotive Engineers Australasia (SAE), said the technology behind the bus - in development for four years - had evolved from a desire to deliver clean, sustainable public transport options."
