The LithoRec Process
The LithoRec projects were funded by the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation Building and Nuclear Safety and VDI/VDE Innovation+Technik GmbH. The projects aimed to develop a new recycling process for lithium-ion batteries from electric and hybrid electric vehicles with a focus on energy efficiency and a high material recycling rate. The developed process route combines mechanical, mild thermal and hydrometallurgical treatment to regain nearly all materials of a battery system.
