Our Recycling division has developed a suite of battery-collection solutions and recycling technologies. We offer innovative and sustainable options for the recovery of critical materials from spent batteries – in particular, lithium-ion batteries.
Collection/processing of spent batteries to recover critical materials
More and more people worldwide are realising the importance of recycling batteries. Lithium Australia’s Recycling division is therefore integral to our goal of establishing a sustainable circular battery economy.
Sorting and batch-processing based on battery chemistry – this increases clean material recovery rates and maximises downstream commodity value.
Dismantling and discharge of high-capacity battery types – includes electric vehicle batteries and those for grid-scale and residential/remote-power energy storage systems.
Mechanised separation techniques – multi-stage shredding, granulation, washing, screening and solid/liquid separation – create valuable products for downstream material recovery.
High recovery rates (typically > 90%) of critical battery materials, which are further refined after extraction to produce chemical elements for new battery production.
These recycled battery materials match those mined and subsequently refined but are produced with fewer emissions, less water usage and less soil displacement, creating a more sustainable supply chain than those for virgin-mined resources.
