Lithium-Ion Batteries: How are cathode materials made?

What you’ll learn

  • At the end you will know what it takes to make cathode materials and be able to read metallurgical flowsheets

  • The full flowsheet of battery making with special focus on cathode materials

  • Pyrometallurgical steps to retrieve Cobalt and Nickel out of the ores (roasting, smelting, converting)

  • Where to find Cobalt, Nickel and Lithium ores and how to mine them (mineralogy basics, crushing, screening, froth flotation)

  • Lithium extraction and refining (from ores and from brine)

  • Hydrometallurgical steps to retrieve Cobalt and Nickel from Matte (leaching, refining, precipitation, solvent extraction and much more)

  • Recycling of Spent Lithium Ion Batteries (battery life cycle, recycling flowsheet, treatment of small portable batteries, recycling of large batteries)

  • Battery Assembly (electrode slurry, calendaring, drying, assembly with separator and anode, winding, electrolyte filling, formation and assembly to battery)

  • Preparation of cathode material (precursor precipitation, lithiation, calcination, post processing, surface coating, alternative approaches)


  • What is an electron?

  • Knowledge in School Chemistry and School Physics, you should be able to answer following questions:

  • What is electricity? What is a battery?
