As we know that lithium is one of the widely
used powering sources in today’s era. The recharging
capacity of the lithium ion battery is quit faster than
other electric battery. Apart from the positive side there
is a negative impact of the Lithium battery, its extraction
requires large amount of water and the released waste
from lithium manufacturing effects the environment in
multiple ways, the toxic chemical emitted during the
lithium extraction pollutes the water, air, and soil.
Because lithium cathode degrades over time, these
batteries cannot be used in fresh batteries. In this paper
we have review the LCA (Life cycle assessment) method
to study the effect of Lithium battery on environment.
