Altilium wins £1M ($1.3 M) in grants from UK government for low carbon “black mass” production, establishing full EV battery circularity for the first time in the UK

By |2023-08-04T09:48:19+01:00July 16th, 2023|

We have won two grants totalling £1 million for the zero-carbon transportation of end-of-life electric vehicle batteries to battery recycling stations (or spokes) and design of an automated battery recycling facility for black mass processing. Transporting old EV batteries is challenging and expensive, given their weight and health and safety risks and could contributes 3.5% [...]

Altilium and Marubeni team up on UK electric vehicle battery recycling, building a low-carbon supply chain for a sustainable automotive future

By |2023-08-04T13:36:13+01:00July 6th, 2023|

Altilium Metals, a UK-based green technology group focused on supporting the transition to net zero, has today announced the signing of a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding with Marubeni Corporation, Japanese trading and investment group. Under the framework of the MOU, the two companies will work together to explore opportunities to jointly develop EV battery recycling [...]

One-year mark reached at our Devon EV Battery Recycling Technology Centre

By |2023-12-31T11:34:36+00:00July 1st, 2023|

This milestone is a significant achievement in our UK leadership in recycling EV batteries producing domestic and low carbon cathode active materials (CAM) for a UK electrified supply chain. Our highlights, learnings and progress: Improved Recycling Techniques: We have made significant progress in optimising a proprietary process recovering +95 % of lithium, nickel, cobalt and [...]

Combining “Bio Mining” and “Urban Mining” to make electric vehicle batteries greener

By |2023-08-04T09:52:15+01:00June 22nd, 2023|

Bio mining employs microbes which can oxidise metal as part of their metabolism. It has been widely used in the mining industry, where microorganisms are used to extract valuable metals from ores. Urban mining recovers critical metals from electronic waste and end-of-life EV batteries. Under a UK Government SMART Innovation Grant, we have commenced work [...]

New progress made in recovering graphite from old electric vehicle batteries for reuse in new EV battery anodes, embracing a circular economy and building a sustainable automotive future

By |2024-01-03T04:26:54+00:00June 14th, 2023|

Testing of our recycled graphite by a European battery anode manufacturer has shown a good match to primary graphite in areas of purity and physio-chemical characteristics. The new results show promising potential for further optimizing the recovery of graphite and combining synthetic and natural graphite in new anodes, lowering costs and providing a domestic and [...]

We’re proud to have been shortlisted for the KPMG 2023 Tech Innovator in the UK competition

By |2023-08-04T09:53:53+01:00June 13th, 2023|

Since 2013, KPMG has shone a spotlight on the game changers, difference makers and tech titans of tomorrow. Altilium has been recognised as one of the UK’s most successful new technology innovators. We are a UK Clean Tech group supporting the shift of the global energy sector from fossil-based to zero-carbon. We are developing innovative [...]

Altilium: UK’s only producer of low carbon, sustainable cathode active material from recycling old batteries soon to be IRA compliant under the ‘Atlantic Declaration’

By |2023-08-04T09:56:42+01:00June 9th, 2023|

The new UK and US economic partnership will help UK-based firms involved in the mining, recycling and refining of critical minerals who are suppling US electric vehicle and battery manufacturers, in turn strengthening a US supply chain for raw materials needed for a sustainable transport future. With an early mover advantage in the UK lithium-ion [...]

Altilium commences economic recycling of old LFP batteries for a sustainable and low carbon mobility future

By |2023-12-31T11:55:03+00:00June 6th, 2023|

The use of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) in EV batteries has historically been favoured by Chinese manufacturers, but other OEMs have started to use LFP which is expected to take up 40% of the global battery market by 2030. LFP batteries are cobalt and nickel free, resulting in cheaper manufacturing costs. LFP batteries contain critical [...]

Altilium ships low carbon MHP from recycling old electric vehicle batteries to US cathode active material producer for a sustainable transportation future

By |2023-10-31T16:49:43+00:00May 22nd, 2023|

The qualification samples of nickel mixed hydroxide precipitate (MHP) produced at its Devon battery recycling scale-up line could be 50% lower carbon with stable levels of purity compared to using virgin raw material from mining and refining. The MHP will support the development of a low carbon footprint, low-cost cathode active material production process direct [...]

Altilium announces the opening of new office in Jakarta to support sourcing of Indonesian Nickle MHP for the UKs only planned Cathode Active Material plant for EV Batteries

By |2023-08-04T11:56:14+01:00May 20th, 2023|

The new office is part of our business strategy to secure primary feed of Nickel Mixed Hydroxide Precipitate for imbalances in quality and quantity of feed at its “mega scale” battery recycling plant in Teesside. In addition to short term start-up supply shortages of scrap, variability in black mass quality from a portfolio of suppliers [...]
