We all depend on batteries for a variety of power sources in our daily lives. What would we do without our arsenal of cell phones, laptops, power tools, remote controls, and other wireless devices? So many home office and entertainment devices, lighting and tools we depend on at home or school, are powered by Li-ion batteries.
According to energy-storage, a new two-step process implemented at commercial demonstration level by Li-Cycle, a company from Canada founded just three years ago, can achieve a recycling rate of 80% to 100% of materials in lithium-ion batteries, the company claims.
Li-Cycle’s Kunal Phalpher said that many other recycling processes used in Europe and by Chinese battery companies are based around pyrometallurgy i.e. smelting down of battery components – only end up with 30% – 40% material recovery from lithium batteries. ——————–***——————–
