Technology Minerals says Recyclus and University of Warwick in engineering development partnership
echnology Minerals PLC (LSE:TM1) said its 49% owned battery recycling company, Recyclus Group, agreed an engineering development partnership with WMG at the University of Warwick.
They created an engineering doctorate focused on battery recycling technologies and a transfer of current and future applications.
The EngD encompasses a four-year programme ‘supporting talented individuals at varying career stages to develop new critical skills sets in this sector and will also focus on addressing contemporary industrial and technical challenges across the battery recycling sector’.
"The Recyclus team have been working with WMG for nearly two years now, both sharing our respective expertise as we have been developing our proprietary processes across the five battery chemistries, and learning from WMG's world-class research programmes," Technology Minerals chief executive, Alex Stanbury, said.
“These are critical to achieving a leadership position for the UK, particularly developing proprietary technology for the processing of black mass into the key metals that can go back into the UK battery gigafactories supply chain and therefore significantly reduce the supply-side pressures.”
Recyclus is a UK leader in the recycling of both lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries with facilities coming online early next year.
