Reduce your own footprint by minimizing waste, eating a more plant-based diet, recycling/repurposing when you can, and making the most sustainable alternative choices when you can’t. Here are some quick and easy tips. But don’t forget…
GLOBAL FOSSIL FUEL EMISSION
Geographic carbon emissions per million of population measured in metric tons.
REDUCING CARBON EMISSIONS
EnergyX is committed to reducing carbon emissions by half a gigaton per year. How do we do this?
We have the ability to positively affect climate change and human energy consumption on a massive scale, potentially reducing greenhouse gases every year by at least half a gigaton (about 1 percent of projected 2050 global emissions). Our LiTAS™ technology enables exponentially more lithium output from the same quantity of source feed, at the same cost. How does generating more lithium positively affect the environment?
EnergyX provides a step change greener solution for recovering lithium.
Current brine evaporation uses 500K gallons water/ton lithium in communities already dealing with water scarcity. There is risk of toxic chemicals leaking from the evaporation ponds into the water supply or being re-injected into brine reservoirs. Meanwhile, hard-rock mining utilizes harsh chemicals to extract lithium, requiring significant site reclamation, and contaminating local water and soil.
A SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION
Sustainability remains at the forefront of our efforts. The result of this breakthrough technology is a radically smaller footprint in lithium production, coupled with little to no fresh water usage, significantly lower CO₂ emissions, and zero harmful chemicals or reagents injected back into the ground. The benefits continue when the lithium is then incorporated into battery storage to advance the implementation of renewable energy.
HOW YOU CAN HELP?
At EnergyX, we are dedicated to not only doing our part to save our planet but also empowering individuals with the knowledge and passion to enact personal change that will inevitably contribute to a better future. Every little bit you do makes an impact toward the greater good. Here are a few simple ways you can start:
Only 100 companies are responsible for 71% of fossil fuel emissions. This means that though individual change is important, the biggest impact we can make comes from demanding corporate responsibility from big businesses like these. Make a statement with your dollar, by spending and investing your money in sustainable businesses instead.
Be politically active, whether that’s voting, canvassing, protesting, or even getting involved in local government yourself. We have the power, but it starts with being informed and active citizens. Here are some tips to get you going.
Support racial justice by examining your own biases, protesting, redistributing wealth, and supporting politicians and policies that will lead to equity for all. You can read more about how climate change is a racial issue here.
Use your voice. We all have a platform, no matter how big or small, and it’s important that we use our platforms for good. Whether that means sharing information on your social media channels or having some difficult conversations with your friends and families, you have more influence than you realize. It’s time to use it.
