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.

BMW, Northvolt and Umicore join forces for cells recycling

Mon, 10/22/2018 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

The BMW Group has formed a joint technology consortium with Swedish lithium-ion start-up Northvolt and Belgium-based materials tech giant Umicore, to develop a “complete and sustainable value chain for battery cells for EVs in Europe”.

This announcement comes just weeks after BMW placed a “billion euro” order for EV batteries from China, saying that they “can’t wait” for Europe to build a battery cells industry.

The consortium’s main aim is to establish a closed life cycle loop for batteries to make battery cells sustainable. The partners said this would be achieved by creating a recyclable cell design and manufacturing process that uses mostly renewable energy.

Narada to invest in Li battery recycling

The board of Chinese battery maker Narada Power has given the green light for plans to launch a commercial lithium-ion batteries and “new energy materials” recycling subsidiary.

The new business— Anhui Narada Huabo New Material and Technology Co., Ltd. (ANHNMT)— will be wholly owned by Narada and receive an initial cash injection of CNY100 million ($15m).
