Recyclus' Li-ion recycling process is industry leading, capable of safely dealing with the 5+ types of Li-ion battery chemistry, in any combination, at any one time.
Moving the industry towards 100% recyclable, zero-landfill solutions, in line with the COP26 agenda & the transition towards electric transport.
Providing end-of-life solutions and strategic support in the UK battery recycling market, to establish the UK's first capability for industrial-scale battery recycling.
Recyclus Group is focusing on the delivery of national end-to-end recycling of lithium-ion and lead-acid batteries, to drive the move towards electrification and more environmentally friendly consumption.
Through our in-house, industrial-scale lithium-ion and lead-acid battery recycling technologies, and UN-certified battery boxes, Recyclus is prioritising the safety and sustainability of battery recycling practices, to ensure that we are taking a responsible approach to the energy transition.
With existing and further critical battery metals shortages on the horizon, securing a stable supply of the key materials will prove vital on the road to electrification. By recycling batteries into their constituent parts, Recyclus is working to ameliorate pressures on the supply chain and offer a sustainable and secure solution, furthering the vision to create a circular economy in the battery metals market.
Nearly every fourth battery is a rechargeable lithium battery. Most are embedded in electric appliances and, with a growth in electric vehicles, there is an estimated $6bn USD opportunity from recoverable materials by 2030, and $45bn USD second-life battery applications market.
There is currently no UK capability for the recovery of these materials, with spent batteries primarily being exported to Asia for recycling and processing, providing a unique opportunity for Recyclus to establish an industrial-scale capability in the UK and beyond.
Recyclus' first lithium-ion recycling plant is located in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, and is capable of recycling 8,300 tonnes of lithium-ion per year.
Using UK manufactured technology and hydrometallurgical processes, Recyclus is able to accept the five key lithium-ion chemistries, for recycling and processing into 'black mass'.
The lead-acid battery recycling industry is currently a major polluter, with over 18,000 tonnes of spent batteries incinerated each year in the UK alone.
This presents Recyclus Group with a unique opportunity to use hydrometallurgical processes and state-of-the-art technology to extract lead-acid paste using water, converting it into 99.99% leady oxide (Pb/PbO). Critically, this process has zero sulphur oxide or nitrous oxide emissions, cutting slag waste by >90% in comparison to existing incumbents, and reducing the carbon footprint by up to 85%.
The global lead battery market will reach $95bn USD by 2026, and is set to increase given the continued demand for vehicles, making sustainable recycling an absolute must for the industry to meet demand.
Recyclus’ first lead-acid plant, located in Tipton, West Midlands, is capable of recycling 16,000 tonnes in the first full year of production. Our sustainable recycling of lead-acid batteries into constituent parts to subsequently be resold will prove vital in the energy transition, enabling resources to be kept in use for longer, minimising waste and reducing the environmental impacts of spent batteries.
The Recyclus Group - through wholly owned Halo Battery Recycling - have designed a solution for the dangers posed in the storage and transportation of lithium batteries, through our UN-approved, ADR compliant battery boxes.
Our boxes boast a British-engineered design, specially created to deliver an unparalleled level of safety, value and longevity, and are safe for most industrial applications, with certified power ratings up to 20kWh. The boxes can be used to store and transport all lithium-ion chemistries, from automotive, industrial, and portable devices.
Our industry-leading battery boxes provide a solution to the rising demands for batteries and the associated risks of handling end-of-life lithium-ion batteries. Our modular approach means any damaged parts can be easily swapped out for ease of repair and lower costs.
The boxes are filled with layers of Lithium Battery Fire Protection Pillows that are designed to contain and extinguish fires - should they occur - suspending and reducing potential thermal runaway and the emission of toxic gases.
