The Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Company that Changes Everything
A Solution for Mass Electrification of Transportation
As society chooses to electrify transportation as a primary tool in the fight against climate change, the number of lithium-ion batteries in circulation worldwide is drastically increasing. Managing waste from batteries at the end of their useful life has consequently become a significant new environmental issue.
By 2040, over 2 million tonnes of lithium-ion batteries will need to be recycled annually in the United States alone.
The Birth of a High-Performance Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Plant
Before Lithion Recycling’s innovation, there was no complete solution for recycling lithium-ion batteries in a sustainable way. The percentage of battery components recovered by previous methods was small and the environmental impact was enormous. That’s a thing of the past now, thanks to the Lithion Recycling team and the economical, sustainable, and high-performance treatment process that they’ve successfully developed.
The Lithion Recycling solution recovers 95% of lithium-ion battery components and regenerates high-purity materials that can be used to manufacture new rechargeable batteries. This technology seriously reduces pressure for new raw material extraction and minimizes the ecological debt of electric vehicles.
Following a three-step development plan, twenty-some lithium-ion battery recycling locations will be installed in North America and Europe. A pilot plant is being built in Quebec in 2019, with support from major industry players who want to accelerate adoption of the technology around the world.
