Better Lithium Ion

The New Energy Era Demands the Best Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Solution

While the shift to electrifying cars is imperative for the planet, this transition will create a new environmental timebomb without metals recycling innovations that are clean and cost-efficient.

140m electric cars globally by 2030 will create massive demand for lithium-ion batteries and critical minerals.

More than 11 million pounds of lithium-ion batteries are expected to reach the end of life by 2030.

Demand for lithium-ion battery materials in the next decade is predicted to increase over 575% for lithium and 1237% for nickel.

We cannot mine enough raw materials to meet our lithium-ion battery needs.

Recycling is the only solution for keeping strategically critical metals within regional supply chains, reducing the dependency risk and environmental cost of relying on foreign sources.

AQUA METALS SOLVES THE MASSIVE LITHIUM-ION RECYCLING CHALLENGE

How our approach is different from other recycling solutions:

NO SMELTING

No furnace required, no greenhouse emissions

HIGHER %

Recovers a higher percentage
of metals in a higher
quality form

MINIMAL WASTE

Closed-loop process that
recycles chemicals
and water

HIGHER QUALITY

Produces higher quality
products at a lower
operating cost

AquaRefining, the cleanest approach to lithium-ion recycling, will produce a higher quality product at a lower cost.

THE AQUAREFINING ADVANTAGE

Aqua Metals’ Eco-Network

We believe a collaboration strategy with innovative companies that have multi-disciplinary backgrounds in metals, mining, high volume throughput, and hydrometallurgy is the best approach to solving the sustainability challenge of metals recycling, especially with lithium-ion batteries. Forming an eco-network is an important step in our strategy for exploring the expansion of AquaRefining technology to other applications.
