25mar12:00 pm1:00 pmThe ReCell Center: Making Lithium-ion Battery Recycling Profitable

Event Details

End-of-life lithium-ion batteries in electric and hybrid-electric vehicles are just now starting to reach their end of life. The recycling infrastructure that these batteries are expected to go through will likely result as a cost to the end-user. ReCell is working to develop, scale-up, and demonstrate, battery recycling processes that reduce cost and increase revenue to improve the economics of responsible end-of-life lithium-ion battery management even as the use of cobalt is reduced in batteries. Four focus areas are targeted: direct cathode recycling, recovery of other materials, design for recycle, and modeling and analysis. This presentation will provide a summary of ReCell’s work to create a profitable battery recycling system.

Presented by Jeff Spangenberger – Materials Recycling R&D Program Lead in the Applied Materials Division at Argonne National Laboratory
