In the second part of this article on various aspects of lithium battery recycling, Flash Battery helps us understand available recycling processes and future options such as direct recycling and second life for batteries
In part one, we have already discussed the structure of a lithium battery and the current legislation regulating the recycling and disposal of lithium batteries in Europe, an area that is increasingly paving the way toward creating its own battery value chain.
Now let us delve into the more technical aspects related to the current and future recycling processes.
“Research and development and the implementation of increasingly streamlined processes to facilitate the recycling and recovery of a battery’s components are among the main goals of the European Green Deal and of all those manufacturers who, like us, want to play an active role in the creation of a European lithium battery value chain,” said Marco Righi, Founder and CEO of Flash Battery. “We keep a steady gaze on an ever-more sustainable future and anticipate European demands and regulations by continuously investing in research into efficiency- and sustainability-oriented materials and skills. As a result, the performance of the product is designed for compatibility with low environmental impact production processes where end-of-life battery disposal and recovery is a topic of focus.”
