A collaborative organisation at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has been awarded a US$1.08 million contract by the US Advanced Battery Consortium (USABC) to extend development of its novel process to recycle spent lithium-ion batteries.

Following the successful completion of (also USABC funded) phase one earlier in 2018, the WPI team— formed of Fiat-Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors— will now use the contract award to fund a 24-month phase two project that will demonstrate their ability to recycle lithium-ion batteries and to generate a higher nickel cathode powder.
