Old EV batteries contain an abundance of valuable materials which we can recover to decarbonise EV battery supply chains, giving energy security and reducing our dependence on mining and producing fresh materials.
Reclaiming of cathode metal from li-ion scrap has been well established, but recycling and upcycling of graphite has been overlooked. Graphite is the largest single ingredient in EV batteries and our proprietary EV battery recycling process recovers over 99% of the graphite.
A looming squeeze on graphite is expected basis demand in batteries for energy storage. We have been optimising our recycling process to provide graphite material of sufficient purity to enable for reintroduction into the anode supply chain. We are now ready to deliver
these innovative samples to a European battery anode manufacturer for their qualification. This breakthrough is a significant milestone in our journey towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly future for electric vehicle batteries.
Altilium is a UK Clean Technology group developing green processes to recycle existing waste streams, such as lithium-scrap and mine waste, supplying large volumes of domestic EV battery materials for a clean transport future.
