Direct recycling


Technology Description

The cathode represents 30-40% of the battery cost but when recycling using pyro or hydro-metallurgy, the value of this complex material is lost in part. Direct recycling consists in extracting the cathode and reactivating it by lithium addition in order to make it reusable in a new battery. One of the main issue is that this process needs to be tailored for each battery type.
