Lithium-ion-battery recycling
Lithium-ion battery - Recharge and recycle

The Primobius recycling process recovers the main active materials of lithium-ion-batteries in a small-footprint, environmentally friendly and sustainable manner such that these materials can be reused in manufacturing battery cathode.

A lithium-ion-battery is a rechargeable battery made up of an anode, cathode, separator, electrolyte, and two current collectors, all of which are enclosed within an outer casing.

Plastic (PE, PP)

The microporous plastic separator materials are commonly made from polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), which are readily recycled. These plastics are recovered and supplied to plastics recycling companies.

Steel

The high-value steel casing materials that maintain the structural integrity of the batteries and afford chemical resistance and corrosion protection are recovered and supplied to metals recycling companies.

Aluminium foil

The cathode current collectors have a substrate of aluminium foil are also recovered and supplied to metals recycling companies.

Hub products

Lithium-ion-batteries that will be recycled by Primobius include batteries with lithium cobalt oxide (LCO), lithium nickel cobalt manganese oxide (NCM) and lithium nickel cobalt aluminium oxide (NCA) cathode chemistries. The valuable metals contained within these cathodes, including cobalt, nickel, and lithium, are recovered as high-purity crystalline chemicals that can be supplied as raw materials back into the LIB supply chain.

Other valuable sulphate products from the Primobius recycling process include manganese sulphate, copper sulphate and ammonium sulphate. These products are suitable for industrial and agricultural applications.
