DEEP SEA MINING
* Polymetallic Nodules containing Cobalt,
* Polymetallic Sulphides
* Cobalt-Rich Ferromanganese Crusts
Nodules do not contain toxic levels of heavy elements and 100 per cent of their mass can be turned into usable materials.
At 3800 - 5500 meters deep, there is intense pressure with a dark and vast sedimentary seabed.
Using ocean nodules to supply metals for one billion electric vehicle batteries will generate at least 70% less CO2 equivalent emissions from land ores.
