Recyclus achieves up to 45% recycling rate for black mass
Since starting commercial operations last month, Recyclus Group is pleased to announce it is reaching up to 45% net black mass yield at its LiBatt plant in Wolverhampton, the UK’s first industrial-scale lithium-ion recycling facility.
This black mass, a key component in battery manufacturing, contains essential metals like lithium, manganese, nickel, and cobalt. The Wolverhampton facility not only recovers these valuable metals but also segregates and prepares other materials such as copper, aluminium, and plastics for resale. With the market rate for black mass exceeding £3,500 per tonne, this process marks a notable stride in battery recycling efficiency.
Robin Brundle, Director and Co-Founder of Recyclus Group, commented:
Our Wolverhampton plant is successfully ramping up production of high-quality, high-rate black mass, crucial for the battery sector. This achievement underscores the effectiveness of our technical solutions and the expertise of our on-site engineers, emphasizing our commitment to sustainable battery metal recovery.
The Wolverhampton plant continues to see a steady influx of Li-ion battery waste from various commercial sources. Recyclus' commercial team is actively engaging with numerous UK organisations to streamline battery recycling, leveraging their robust logistics network for efficient collection and processing.
