A unique and dependable approach to solving the global battery recycling problem.
Here’s how it works
Our proprietary Spoke & Hub Technologies use a combination of mechanical safe size reduction and hydrometallurgical resource recovery specifically designed for lithium-ion battery recycling.
Mechanical safe size reduction
All types of lithium-ion batteries are transformed from a charged state to an inert product in a safe and efficient manner.
Cathode and anode materials are processed into battery grade end-products for reuse in lithium-ion battery production or other applications in the broader economy.
Our technology and a sustainable future.
By solving the global end-of-lifecycle lithium-ion battery problem, we create a secondary supply to both meet the demand for critical battery materials and ensure a sustainable future for our planet.
Validated and scalable
Li-Cycle’s commercial plant has provided important validation of our Spoke & Hub Technologies, as well as confirmation of its scalability to a commercial level.
Safe and sustainable
Proprietary technology allows for safe processing of all lithium-ion batteries without any landfilled waste and minimal GHGs, thus providing a sustainable end-of-life pathway for all lithium-ion batteries.
Driven by unparalleled recovery rates, Li-Cycle’s Spoke & Hub Technologies are an economically viable lithium-ion resource recovery solution, enabling commercialization and supporting the global transition toward electrification.
High quality end products
In alignment with our core value proposition, Li-Cycle has demonstrated and produced battery-grade end-products generated through our advanced lithium-ion battery recycling and resource recovery technology.
