BMW: Batteries will have cobalt from Morocco

The future batteries of BMW’s electric cars will be powered by Moroccan cobalt. “The BMW group is getting cobalt, an essential raw material for cell production, directly from the Australian and Moroccan mines,” the German group said in a statement.

This ore will be donated to Chinese battery manufacturer CATL (Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Limited) and South Korean Samsung SDI.

As a reminder, the Kingdom has mines such as Bouazzer south of Ouarzazate (Managem Group), a gigantic deposit with an annual production of 2,000 tons and some 1,600 employees.
