Contributing to the supply chain through recycling is clearly vital, but doing so safely is one of the real challenges with dismantling and recycling lithium-ion batteries. To ensure we are taking a responsible approach to the energy transition, the UK and beyond need to prioritise the safety and sustainability of battery recycling practices.
This is precisely why Recyclus is mechanising a previously manual process, as well as manufacturing storage and transportation boxes for the safe and secure movement of hazardous spent lithium-ion batteries.
For several years, the founder shareholders of Recyclus have been involved in ecologically sustainable exploration in Europe, the United States, and Africa for critically important technology metals, which are vital to maintain progress in the Global Energy Transition.
However, it was readily acknowledged that one of the primary focuses of transition - the transportation sector (and particularly automotive) - would need to address the ‘buy, use, throw away’ culture by engaging with new technology companies to advance the circular economy concept.
An early-to-market strategy enables Recyclus to lock in the global automotive, aviation and heavy vehicle markets by offering a comprehensive contracted solution, reducing risk of market share loss to existing and/or emerging competition.
Additionally, the early-to-market strategy enhances Recyclus' brand position as leader and innovator in the market, encouraging government and industry support that is key to furthering R&D activity into lithium-ion battery recycling solutions.
Customers are looking for secure and efficient collection and recycling of batteries, removing risk for personnel, ensuring compliance and re-enforcing positive brands.
After carrying out in-depth research on relevant new technologies and the tightening regulatory environment, Recyclus Group Limited was incorporated in December 2019, following discussions with Mr Robin Brundle, who brings a wealth of relevant experience as a Director of Recyclus.
Recyclus are meeting the customers' needs by focusing on the delivery of national end-to-end recycling of batteries. We are the first industrial-scale lithium battery recyclers in the UK, bringing skills and resources and a leading network of suppliers, researchers and influencers.
We are adding value by vertically integrating recycling services that are focused on green innovation, moving the industry towards 100% recyclable, zero-landfill solutions. Recyclus are leaders, working collaboratively to support the circular economy for battery metals.
