The scaled-up production of battery-grade lithium carbonate from recycled battery waste represents an advancement in the transition towards a more sustainable and circular economy.
SURREY — RecycLiCo Battery Materials Inc., a battery materials company focused on the development of novel and environmentally friendly lithium-ion battery recycling and upcycling technologies, and its R&D partner Kemetco Research Inc., provided an operational update on the RecycLiCo hydrometallurgical demonstration plant (the Demo Plant) in Vancouver, Canada.
The Demo Plant has undergone thousands of person-hours over several months which has delivered high-quality battery materials and operational data for continued business development.
The scaled-up production of battery-grade lithium carbonate from recycled battery waste represents an advancement in the transition towards a more sustainable and circular economy. By offering a scalable and robust solution, RecycLiCo is well-positioned to help meet the increasing demand for lithium, a critical component in the production of batteries for electric vehicles, portable electronics, and energy storage systems.
The company believes the Demo Plant will continue to add value as an innovation center to continuously advance its hydrometallurgical lithium-ion battery recycling technology, advance business development efforts, and provide engineering data for commercial joint ventures.
RecycLiCo intends to continue Demo Plant operation, using black mass feedstock, for process optimization and to produce bulk quantities of battery-ready cathode precursor and lithium hydroxide for advanced product qualification necessary for developing and securing commercial opportunities.
