Last year the IEA put out a report that said that if we actually start tracking toward net zero by 2050, we will need 42x the lithium that we currently produce annually. Battery recycling will be one of the pillars of meeting that intense demand and enabling us to sustainably and ethically source the critical minerals needed to power the energy transition.
On this episode of the Wharton Current, host Adriel Barrett-Johnson sits down with Wilson Ma of Li Cycle, a leading battery recycling company in North America. They discuss the role of battery recycling in the energy transition and the significance of Li Cycle’s updates to some of the traditional processes.
