Given its versatility, lithium carbonate is used in various industries, such as electronics, ceramics, glass, etc. Due to its high electrochemical potential and being the lightest solid element, its main use is as a cathode material in lithium ion batteries. These batteries have had a strong and growing demand in recent times, mainly due to the great growth of the electric vehicle market, but for their use in laptops, mobile phones, digital cameras, SQM produces lithium carbonate at its Salar del Carmen, near Antofagasta, Chile, from solutions with high concentrations of lithium from the Salar de Atacama.
