Evaporation pond. Worker checking concentration levels in a lithium evaporation pond in the Atacama desert, Chile. Over a number of months the sun evaporates the water, leaving a highly concentrated lithium chloride solution. This is then processed into lithium carbonate that is used in the production of batteries.
