Primobius has been nominated for the German Sustainability Award 2021

We are pleased about our nomination for the German Sustainability Award 2021! Awards are given to companies that include sustainability in their business model and that make effective transformational contributions with innovative products and services, high ecological standards in production, or special social commitment in their value chain.

We are thrilled if our hydrometallurgical recycling process for lithium-ion batteries will also make it to the finals. Our solution is an energy-efficient and flexible system that meets the needs of various industry stakeholders and helps achieve sustainability goals as it produces high-purity chemicals for re-use in the next generation of LIBs.

Primobius is the result of a joint venture partnership between Australian Stock Exchange listed company Neometals Ltd. and private German engineering and technology company, SMS group. Primobius is to commercialize advanced recycling technology, offering a unique and sustainable method for recovering valuable lithium, nickel, cobalt and other materials from expended and scrap electric vehicles and consumer electronics LiB’s. Recovered and refined product materials will be reformed and re-applied back into the battery supply chain.
