Johnson Matthey partners with OnTo Technology on battery production scrap recycling

Johnson Matthey has entered into an agreement with OnTo Technology, a developer of battery recycling methods, to scale up OnTo’s process for the direct recycling of lithium-ion battery scrap. OnTo’s patented Cathode Healing process restores the coating material to use in new battery production, and avoids energy-intensive refining processes. Jane Toogood, Chief Executive of Johnson… Read more »

Nth Cycle says its electroextraction tech significantly reduces transportation costs for Li-ion battery recycling

Refining the circular economy for battery materials. As the e-mobility transition accelerates, demand for critical minerals is growing exponentially. Companies on the cutting edge, such as Tesla, are already experiencing shortages. However, to extract ever more minerals by mining and dispose of the waste in landfills, would be to continue the practices that got the… Read more »

Ford and Redwood Materials to collaborate on battery recycling

Redwood Materials, the battery materials firm founded by Tesla cofounder JB Straubel, has announced a partnership with Ford. The two companies will work together to “create a closed loop for battery recycling and a domestic supply chain for critical battery materials.” Ford also made a strategic investment of $50 million in Redwood. “Excited to work… Read more »

Nissan and Waseda University announce recycling process for rare-earth compounds

Nissan and Waseda University are testing a jointly developed recycling process that recovers high-purity rare-earth compounds from EV motor magnets.  Since 2010, Nissan has been working from the design stage to reduce the amount of heavy rare-earth elements (REEs) in motor magnets. Nissan is also recycling REEs by removing magnets from motors that do not… Read more »

Heritage Battery Recycling and 6K to commercialize cathode-grade battery recycling network

Indianapolis-based Heritage Battery Recycling has signed a joint development agreement with materials management specialist 6K to produce new cathode material from recycled batteries. The process will use Heritage’s established network to collect and process end-of-life batteries, combined with 6K’s plasma technology to manufacture cathode-grade battery materials for applications with high purity requirements. 6K is named… Read more »

Li-Cycle to build battery recycling facility in Alabama

Li-Cycle has announced plans to build a fourth commercial battery recycling facility in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This facility will add to the capacity of the Kingston, Ontario and Rochester, New York plants. The company’s Gilbert, Arizona facility is still under construction.  Univar Solutions will be an anchor battery feed supply customer for the new facility. Li-Cycle… Read more »

Tesla says new recycling process recovers 92% of battery materials

Battery recycling will be a critical part of the future e-mobility ecosystem, as Tesla has understood from the beginning. The California carmaker has been working with various firms to recycle its end-of-life battery packs for several years. One of these is Tesla co-founder JB Straubel’s company, Redwood Materials, which is recycling scrap from Panasonic’s battery… Read more »

Faraday Institution develops ultrasonic recycling method

Faraday Institution researchers working on the recycling of lithium-ion batteries at the Universities of Leicester and Birmingham have developed a new method to recover materials from end-of-life EV batteries. The new process uses ultrasonic waves to separate valuable material from the electrodes. The researchers say it delivers a higher purity of recovered materials compared to… Read more »

Battery recycling plant at Port of Rotterdam to open in 2022

TES, a provider of sustainable technology lifecycle services, has taken over a recycling facility at the Port Of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest seaport, from Battery Recycling Services Netherlands. TES plans to focus the facility on the recycling of lithium-ion batteries. TES already operates similar facilities in Grenoble, France and in Singapore. The facility currently covers 10,000… Read more »
