Reduce our environmental impacts with a sustainable solution.
Close the life cycle loop of battery.
Promote electrification of transport and access to renewable electricity.
Develop and market our clean technology (Cleantech) for recycling lithium-ion batteries to produce battery materials, thus closing the loop on their life-cycle. Lithion Recycling is carrying out a three-phase deployment, beginning with the construction of a pilot plant and ending with new commercial plants around the world. This innovative process benefits both battery manufacturers and companies using these batteries in their products, providing a sustainable solution for battery end-of-life management and contributing to the creation of a new source of materials required for their manufacture.
Deploy our technology in cities near major users around the globe to recycle all lithium-ion batteries in a responsible and ecofriendly manner, while producing materials for reuse in battery manufacturing. This contribution to a circular economy accelerates the transition to green energies, including transportation electrification and renewable energy storage, helping the world achieve its goals of decarbonization while reducing the reliance on natural resource extraction.
The Lion Project entails the construction and operation of a pilot plant for recycling lithium-ion batteries using the innovative process developed by Lithion Recycling. In conducting this project, Lithion Recycling is supported by a strong consortium consisting of:
- Seneca experts-conseils
- Hydro-Québec’s Center of Excellence in Transportation Electrification and Energy Storage (CEETES)
- Centre d’étude des procédés chimiques du Québec (CÉPROCQ)
Lithion Recycling has developed an efficient and cost-effective process for recycling lithium-ion batteries, the most widely used batteries for electrical vehicles and portable electronics today. This new process will allow up to 95% of these batteries’ components to be recovered and treated so that they can be reused by battery manufacturers—a concrete way to close the loop on battery life-cycle.
The technology put forward by Lithion Recycling uses an innovative combination of hydro- and electrometallurgy-based extraction processes. The result is a low-carbon process generating zero effluent. The plants operating this technology will be very compact, modular, and affordable.
