Recently, Canada's lithium cycle recycling company Li-cycle announced that it has completed commercial delivery for the first recycling lithium battery material. Li-cycle represents an element that can recover more than 80% of the lithium-ion battery. At the same time, Li-cycle's kunalphalpher said that many battery recovery processes used by Europe and China Battery Based on high temperature metallurgy, such as melting battery components, this method is only 30% -40%.
Ajaykochhar, President and CEO of Li-Cycle, said: "The delivery of the first batch of commercial battery material products marks an important milestone developed by LicyCle, indicating that we are moving toward the direction of the first-class battery resource recycling handle, can handle Lithium-ion batteries from a large number of customers and application scenarios. "The first recycling material is extracted in the factory in LI-Cycle is located in Ontario, Canada, and is ready to be delivered again. Li-cycle recycled materials are cobalt, nickel and lithium.
Li-cycle describes the recovery method as two phases of mechanical and wet chemical methods. First, use a mechanical method to narrow the battery size. Phalpher said: "Chopose them, remove plastics and metals, and get the essence of metal fragments in electrode materials.
"This crushing process can even be used for rechargeable batteries, which means that the battery is shipped from the customer to the Li-Cycle factory, the battery's discharge process does not need to waste labor, financial resources. The second step is to use wet metallurgy, wet chemical process to recover the battery: a metal fragment takes one to the value of value, such as lithium carbonate, lithium, cobalt, copper, aluminum, graphite, iron, iron phosphate. PHALPHER pointed out that this high temperature metallurgy process actually did not recycle lithium.
With this method, all different types of cathode and anode chemicals can be recovered in a lithium ion spectrum without the need to classify according to a particular chemical. Company LI-CYCLE was established in the middle of the 2010, and the company has now become one of the main advocates in the field of lithium-ion battery recycling. Almost 100% lithium-ion battery materials (including cobalt) can be extracted by the company's unique two steps.
In addition to the factory in Canada, Li-Cycle also plans to establish another processing plant in Rochester, New York, in the end of NY. The company also intends to actively explore "international opportunities". At present, companies from all over the world are developing the second source of key battery materials.
Just in the early March, Fortum, BASF and Nornickel announced a joint program that recovered valuables from lithium-ion batteries. ERAMET, BASF (BASF) and Suez (SUEZ) and Audi (Audi) and Emcore are also seeking similar projects. In Germany, a team consisting of 13 partners in Baden-W¨¹rttemberg is developing a robot auxiliary dismantling plant for recycling batteries and electric vehicles.
StefanhogGpower, operators and business development department, has written some articles on battery recycling processes and its working methods, as well as existing and future market opportunities for lithium-ion battery materials. He pointed out that in order to meet the market demand of electric vehicles and portable electronic products, battery manufacturers have produced a large number of lithium-ion batteries, but he also has confidence in the development of fixed energy storage industries, and the global economic and environment will benefit from it. HOGG said: "As a key driving force for the transformation of the fossil fuel, deploying a lithium-ion battery energy storage system is an indispensable opportunity to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.
However, in order to ensure a positive impact on the environment, it is necessary to ensure a closed-loop system to securely handle and recover the old lithium battery. This will enable the key battery material to re-integrate into a lithium ion battery supply chain, and promote a broader economic development while preventing adverse negative effects on environmental and safety. .
