Altilium Metals produces cathode active materials from recycled EV batteries

UK-based tech group Altilium Metals has produced cathode active materials (CAMs) recovered from end-of-life EV battery scrap. The first samples have been delivered to Imperial College London, where the materials will be analyzed under a joint research program partly funded by the UK government’s Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) through its Automotive Transformation Fund. Under the… Read more »

Cummins tests new ePowertrain on track at Millbrook Proving Ground

Cummins, which  has been building diesel engines for heavy-duty vehicles since 1919, is methodically moving into the electric age. Now the company has successfully demonstrated a new ePowertrain for heavy-duty vehicles, using a test truck at Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, England. The integrated 17Xe ePowertrain, developed by Meritor (now part of Cummins) with Advanced… Read more »

EV Battery Recycling: UK’s Biggest Opportunity From Battery Waste Is To Feed Its Cathode Manufacturing Industry

Recovering battery materials is critical to making new batteries and can be produced at a lower carbon footprint than mined materials. Battery producers can build viable circular eco-systems to harness the manufacturing scrap to build new cells. Re-processing scrap from the scale-up of UK gigafactories could generate up to 20,000 tonnes of cathode active materials… Read more »
