Why Recycle Li-Ion?
Enabling a circular supply chain for batteries, we reduce the global need for mining of virgin material especially of conflict materials, like cobalt, found in lithium-ion batteries. We’ve recycled nearly 2 million pounds of these batteries year to date in 2017. This equates to up to 400,000 pounds of recovered cobalt that can be reused. It is a small part to ease the ever-rising demand for cobalt where, “thousands of miners in Congo dig by hand. Children, too,” according a recent The Washington Post article. These deplorable conditions urge us into full R&D mode in the product life extension for lithium-ion batteries, starting with laptop, power tool and cell phone batteries and working our way into electric vehicle battery reuse and re-purpose.
