Battery management and materials processor Cirba Solutions said its Heritage Battery Recycling affiliate will construct a lithium-ion battery recycling facility in Eloy, Arizona.
Cirba said the facility complements Cirba Solutions’ existing presence in Arizona and positions it to boost collection and processing for North America’s west coast end-of-life collection and EV battery manufacturing facilities.
The Eloy facility will process lithium-ion end-of-life batteries and battery manufacturing scrap. Additional services will include disassembly, sorting, warehousing and diagnostic testing. The Eloy plant will provide raw material feedstock to provide battery-grade salts for new cathode and battery manufacturing such as nickel, cobalt, manganese and lithium.
The factory is expected to be in operation in mid-2023.
