Drivers and Restraints:

Increasing Demand for Clean Energy Sources to Boost Growth

People nowadays are rapidly shifting towards clean power sources as they offer efficient input to various applications. Companies worldwide have surged the installation of multiple batteries for numerous electric vehicles and energy storage. This is expected to bolster the replacement of long-standing batteries with low out efficiency generating wastes. Total, for instance, announced its plan to construct a battery-based energy storage project in France in March 2020. Such initiatives are likely to accelerate the lithium-ion battery recycling market growth in the upcoming years.

However, the construction of new recycling facilities involves high investments, which, in turn, may hamper the demand for lithium-ion battery recycling services.

Industry Developments:

June 2021 – Germany-based chemicals company, BASF declared to initiate construction of a new battery recycling prototype plant at the company’s Cathode Active Materials (CAM) facility site in Schwarzheide, Germany. The company targets to utilize the advanced solution and extract cobalt, manganese, lithium, and nickel from lithium-ion batteries reaching the exhaustion period.

July 2021 – Canada-based Li-Cycle confirmed to initiate a partnership agreement with Helbiz to establish sustainable recycling solutions for LIBs reaching their exhaustion period and are currently equipped across e-bikes and e-scooters.

September 2020: Solvay and Veolia partnered up to develop a circular economy consortium. They aim to optimize the lithium-ion battery recycling process from hybrid and electric vehicles, especially in Europe. They will reuse rare or critical raw materials.

July 2019: BRUNP is planning to construct a new plant for producing approximately 100,000 tons/year of lithium-ion battery (LIB) scrap in China. It will start operating from 2020.
