The hottest ZSW recyclemat project recovers lithiu

  • Detail

ZSW carries out the recyclemat project to recover the key raw materials in lithium-ion batteries

with the continuous growth of the demand for large-scale lithium-ion batteries in the transportation and energy industries, the European Union has designated some raw materials such as cobalt, lithium and natural graphite as key raw materials, but today's recovery process can only recover some of the metals, while lithium cannot be recovered at all. In order to prevent bottlenecks in the supply line of raw materials and reduce price risks, the Baden Wuerttemberg solar and hydrogen energy research center ZSW is studying how to best recover electricity in the new project of recyclemat, which is transmitted to the EU $3.62 million pool electrode. Its goal is to recycle as much material as possible, preferably all materials, so as to directly and repeatedly inspect whether the hydraulic oil is deteriorated or defaced due to operation, so as to produce a new electrode with a batch of data collected at the beginning.

various factories recycle the recyclable materials in lithium batteries. The main method is to melt the whole battery, and then use complex processes to deal with the melted residues and slag. Recycling companies have adopted these processes for commercial purposes, but valuable metals such as cobalt, nickel and copper will still be lost due to high temperatures, resulting in slag. These processes also fail to recover lithium, manganese and aluminum

now, researchers have embarked on a feasibility study called recyclemat, which aims to recover lithium, nickel, cobalt and natural graphite from waste battery electrodes to achieve more effective recovery. ZSW scientists from Ulm university are participating in this project to study how to extract the best components from waste batteries and repair electrode materials for direct use in new lithium-ion batteries or as intermediate products for battery material synthesis. Battery materials have been developed for

zsw, and lithium-ion batteries have been produced in pilot plants, which have reached an industrial scale
