Our process will produce higher quality products at a lower operating cost without the damaging effects of furnaces and greenhouse emissions.


Proven Technology with Lead Recycling

Aqua Metals’ patented and commercially proven AquaRefining technology is a cleaner and more cost-efficient lead recovery and recycling process.

This room-temperature, closed loop, water-based process is fundamentally nonpolluting, cost-efficient and produces the purest lead ever made from a recycling technique. The first licensed AquaRefinery is being established in Taiwan, one of the fastest growing lead-recycling regions.


Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Goes Large

C&EN – The electric vehicle (EV) revolution is shifting into high gear. Automakers sold over 10 million EVs last year, more than half of them in China, and global sales should top 14 million this year, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). That growth is being accompanied by a surge in lithium-ion battery manufacturing. The IEA says that in 2022, EV battery demand soared to 550 GW h, a roughly 65% rise from the previous year.
