Is EV Battery Recycling Ready For Prime Time?

EV PULSE – From smartphones to EVs to backup power, lithium-ion batteries run much of our modern world. But we’ve got a big problem on our hands when these energy reservoirs wear out, especially in a future where electric vehicles are the norm. Today we’re talking to experts to explore the current state of electric car battery recycling. We’ll learn how it’s done and why it’s so important, and we’ll learn all recycling isn’t necessarily good for the environment.

Aqua Metals joins $4.99M DOE grant project

RECYCLING TODAY – Aqua Metals Inc., a Reno, Nevada-based lithium-ion battery (LIB) recycler will collaborate in a $4.99 million U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grant project as part of a consortium led by Penn State University. The initiative is aimed at establishing a fully domestic supply chain for critical minerals used in a range of modern technologies, including electric vehicles (EVs) and renewable energy systems.

EV Battery Recycling Gains Momentum

ASSEMBLY – As the automotive industry accelerates its shift toward electric vehicles, there is an increasing focus on battery recycling to address environmental concerns. By reclaiming materials from old lithium-ion batteries or manufacturing scrap, recyclers can contribute to a circular economy, repurposing resources and mitigating environmental impact.
