Scientists at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) in the US have demonstrated a proof-of-principle electrochemical process for recycling lithium-ion batteries. 

The room temperature process uses electricity, instead of heat, to power the reactions that leach cobalt, lithium, manganese and other materials from shredded lithium-ion batteries.

INL’s new equipment boosts EV battery safety

The US Idaho National Laboratory (INL) has reportedly bought two fireproof chemical storage containers that allow lithium-ion batteries to be tested under extreme temperature conditions.

Local medial said INL tests experimental batteries including those from Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Electric vehicles (EVs) batteries used in Chevrolet are likely to be tested in new containers in next year, according to reports.
