"Four Transformations" to aid the lithium industry's net-zero emissions

Looking across the entire lithium industry chain, achieving this goal necessitates coordinated efforts in upstream extraction, midstream refining, downstream applications, and end-of-life recycling. Through the "Four Transformations" - diversification of lithium ore sources upstream, greening lithium extraction processes midstream, efficient utilization of downstream resources, and recycling battery materials at the end - collectively realizing net-zero emissions in the lithium industry chain.
