Huge mineral discovery in Norway could supply battery and solar panels for the next 100 years.

Huge phosphate deposits discovered in Scandinavia could be large enough to supply electric vehicles,solar panels and fertilisers for up to 100 years.The valuable ore was discovered in 2018 by Norge Mining who revealed that they had found 70 billion tonnes of the material. Phosphate is rich in phosphorus which is a key component of many green technologies,as well as fertiliser.Once mined,it can be processed into phosphoric acid and supply a broad range of uses. "We believe the phosphorus that we can produce will be important to the West-it provides autonomy," founder and deputy CEO of Norge Mining,Michael Wurmser told news website Euractiv. However,the refining of phosphorus has historically been very carbon intensive but Norge Mining plans to use carbon capture and storage to offset the environmental impact of production. https://www.euronews.com/green

      May be? Norway has the cleanest raw material for Solsr Panels in the ground. https://no.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silisium And should change from oil into solar industry 🇳🇴

        I am skeptical about the greatness of this discovery... Phosphate is, before everything else, used to produce fertilizers that pollute our waters and soils and kill our biodiversity. There is already so much phosphate available in seas and lakes that could be recovered and reused, so I really think that the way to go is to become circular (cc @ragn_sells ). Also, I am wondering how eco-friendly the mining of this mineral will be...

          This is an amazing discovery.. I hope the country will try to make the mining process carbon free

            Let's hope this can be capitalized on quickly. We need more EVs in the world for sustainability.

              Is this good news? While this could be encouraging for solar panels or EVs, phosphate is mostly used for fertilisers which have been destroying the soils. We also need to consider the way these minerals will be mined.

                A major win for the environment, hope this will be utilised to the fullest keeping in mind the wellness of the surrounding community.

                      Sounds interesting! But will it have a negative on the local communities? For example on the indigenous Sami people?

                          Sounds like a good fortune for the EV industry.
