Mechanical separation solutions for battery recycling and innovative techniques for the recycling of lithium-ion batteries showcased by Stokkermill R&D at ICBR 2023. The 28th International Congress - Battery Recycling ICBR 2023 held in Valencia has recently concluded. The event served as a dynamic platform for industry leaders, innovators, and experts to converge, exchange ideas, and explore cutting-edge solutions for sustainable battery recycling. Among the highlights of the conference, the spotlight shone brightly on innovative mechanical separation technologies that promise to revolutionize the recycling of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs).
Meeting the Challenge: The Lithium Battery Recycling Conundrum
As the world races toward a greener future, the demand for lithium-ion batteries has skyrocketed. These batteries power electric vehicles (EVs), renewable energy systems, and a myriad of portable devices. However, the rapid growth in LIB production has raised concerns about the management of end-of-life batteries. LIBs contain valuable materials like lithium, cobalt, nickel, copper and aluminum, but their complex composition and potential safety hazards make recycling a formidable challenge.
