Electrochemical lead recycling firm Aqua Metals was named the winner of the Rising Star category in the 2016 Platts Global Metals Awards program.
Aqua Metals was recognised for its AquaRefining process, the industry’s first commercially viable alternative lead-acid battery recycling technology.
The company was also named a finalist in the Industry Leadership Award – Base Metals category. All finalists and awardees were chosen from more than 100 nominees across 17 countries.
“It is an honor to earn the accolades of such a highly respected organization for our work to revolutionize the lead industry,” said Dr. Stephen Clarke (pictured), chairman and CEO of Aqua Metals.
“As we enter a ‘Battery Age,’ lead-acid technologies can experience continued market dominance with the development of a recycling method that is economically sustainable and environmentally responsible. This distinction affirms that Aqua Metals has developed just that.”
