Over 145 million electric vehicles are set to take the road by 2030 and a major component of the new class of electric vehicles – lithium-ion batteries – is rarely recycled. 

Canadian battery recycling company Li-Cycle is aiming to change through its sustainable process to provide an end-of-life solution for lithium-ion batteries, while creating a secondary supply of critical battery materials.

On this episode of Here’s an Idea™, Kunal Phalpher, Chief Strategy Officer at Li-Cycle, discusses why we haven’t been able to recycle batteries effectively in the past and how that’s changing. Phalpher also talks about the company’s “spoke and hub” model.
