TURNING END-OF-LIFECYCLE LITHIUM – ION BATTERIES
REAL CIRCULLAR ECONOMY PRODUCT
At the same time, the number of used batteries is growing and so is the demand for rare raw materials necessary for their production, such as lithium, cobalt or nickel. This creates significant challenges not only for supply chains, but also for the environment.
ELION aims to address these challenges. We want to achieve this through our proprietary, environmentally friendly technology for recycling li-ion batteries and recovering the valuable elements they contain. Technology thanks to which the concept of closed-loop economy and sustainable management of the Earth’s resources will become not just an idea, but reality.
A. Mechanical shredding
Waste batteries are shredded and their individual “components”, including so called “black mass”, are separated.
An environmentally safe process carried out in a closed loop.
Thanks to hydrometallurgical processes the most valuable elements (including cobalt and lithium) are separated from the obtained fine fraction.
High purity of obtained materials – possibility of reuse in battery production and other industries.
