Li-Cycle Technology™

A unique and dependable approach to solving a pressing global issue

Li-Cycle Technology™ Summary

Advanced battery recycling technology presenting a solution to a pressing global challenge

Li-Cycle’s battery recycling technology uses a combination of mechanical safe size reduction (‘Spoke’) and hydrometallurgical resource recovery (‘Hub’) specifically designed for lithium-ion battery recycling. The technology can do so with an unparalleled recovery rate of ≥95% of all materials. The two key stages of the recycling process are outlined below:

resource recovery technology, safe size reduction, hydrometallurgical, critical materials, battery recycling technology, Spoke and Hub

Through the integrated development of Li-Cycle Technology™, it has been identified that the ideal fit-for-market commercialization strategy is one of decentralization – i.e. with tailored Spokes that are close to the highest volume points of consolidation of lithium-ion batteries, and centralized Hubs that are decoupled from the size reduction facilities and strategically located to take in material from multiple Spokes.
