Why is the project needed?
Lithium-ion batteries are increasingly powering our world in automotive, industrial, utility, residential energy storage, and consumer electronics. Since 2010, the demand for lithium-ion batteries has grown by more than 500%. The world and environment need technology like ours to recycle these batteries and to ensure a sustainable future for our planet.
What is in a lithium-ion battery and where might I find it in my day-to-day life?
A lithium-ion battery is a type of rechargeable battery that employs lithium ions for its power. Lithium-ion batteries are literally everywhere in your everyday life — cell phones, laptops, power tools, scooters, e-bikes, transit buses, passenger vehicles and many more common devices.
How will the Town of Greece and the Greater Rochester Area benefit from the Project?
The project will create approximately 220 new permanent jobs, ranging from entry level to senior management and we plan to recruit from the local workforce. Additionally, another approximately 600 jobs will be created for the project’s construction. We also expect an increased tax revenue for the benefit of surrounding communities, and that the project will support hundreds of indirect jobs.
What will project operations look like?
While the Hub will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we do not anticipate substantial noise, odor, or light impacts. We will have controls in place to help mitigate these impacts from our operations.
