The green energy revolution is putting increased demand on raw materials used in Lithium-Ion batteries such as Cobalt and Nickel. Meanwhile, end users of these green products are also demanding that the metals and raw materials used to manufacture them are ethically produced, traceable and have low carbon footprints. Sustainable sources of Nickel and Cobalt even command a premium price over conventionally produced metals, and Lithium-Ion battery recycling will help meet the demand well into the future.
High purity Nickel and Cobalt can be recovered from a wide variety of secondary and recycled sources using emew technologies. From spent Lithium-Ion batteries, to complex, mixed-metal slags and residues, emew recovers high purity, sustainable and traceable Nickel and Cobalt. Depending on the feed material, the process can involve dismantling, crushing, grinding, pre-treatment, leaching, purification and electrowinning.
Closed-loop sustainability is driving business strategy at every stage of the product lifecycle. If you are looking for a clean technology to produce sustainable and traceable Nickel and Cobalt with low carbon footprint for green energy applications, turn to emew.
