Renewable energy has the potential to end the fossil fuel era. Electrochemical storage systems, especially lithium-ion batteries (LIB), are an important technology to successfully achieve this transition. This is due to the sum of their positive characteristics, such as high energy density and low self-discharge. At the production site, the growing application of LIB has led to high investment in research and development, focusing on issues such as optimized cell production or optimization of active materials. Thus, recycling of end-of-life batteries play an important role in the development. The hydrometallurgical process is considered to be the most suitable method for the recycling of spent lithium-ion batteries.

Key Trends in Global Hydrometallurgical Recycling Market

Growing Demand for Battery Materials in Electric Vehicles

Increasing demand for hydrometallurgical recycling process owing to recover the other components of spent lithium-ion batteries including electrolyte and anode materials along with the cathode active materials is important as they are harmful if released in the environment. This is a key factor expected to proliferate growth of the target market. Increasing government initiatives and funding to promote the recycling of batteries owing to fulfill the demand of renewable energy is expected to support growth of the target market. Investments by prominent players and new developments in technologies has created potential opportunities for major players.
