Researchers hail improved recycling process for LIB cathodes

Researchers at the University of California San Diego say they have improved the safety of a recycling process that regenerates degraded cathodes from spent lithium-ion batteries. 

The research is part of a larger effort under the US ReCell Center initiative to promote ithium-ion battery recycling.

Project leader Zheng Chen (pictured), a professor of nanoengineering affiliated with the Sustainable Power and Energy Center at UC San Diego, said: “Due to the rapid growth of electric vehicle markets, the worldwide manufacturing capacity of lithium-ion batteries is expected to reach hundreds of gigawatt hours per year in the next five years.”
