Listen to the Podcast on Inside Transportation Podcast

August 25, 2020 – Johan Moreno

On this week’s bonus episode of the Inside Transportation Podcast, I sit down for a 1 on 1 interview with the Chief Commercial Officer of Li-Cycle Corp., Kunal Phalpher.

Kunal brings extensive international experience in the lithium-ion battery and renewable energy sectors to Li-Cycle, with experience primarily in business development and corporate strategy. Kunal walks us through what it means to manage lithium-ion battery supply chain sustainably.

We talk about the challenges of the lithium-ion battery recycling market, the process on how EV batteries are recycled, and the company’s strategies to solve the global end-of-life lithium-ion battery problems.

Kunal explains how Li-Cycle Technology can achieve a recovery rate of ≥95% of critical materials including lithium, cobalt, nickel, and graphite, found in lithium-ion batteries, and return them back to the battery supply chain indefinitely.
