With our strategy for extracting copper from mine waste and recycling spent electric vehicle batteries we plan to bring energy security to the UK and Europe and reduce their dependency on technology metals from countries with poor human rights.

What We Are

Altilium Metals is a UK based green technology group supporting the transformation of the global energy sector from fossil-based to zero-carbon. We have over £3 million in UK Government Innovation awards to scale up a proprietary recycling process to extract strategic metals from spent electric vehicle batteries and support an electrified automotive supply chain.

Altilium Metals has a unique exposure to battery metals with a portfolio holding:

  • A SX-EW hydrometallurgical plant on the largest copper mine waste resource in Eastern Europe. Commencing retrofit of the copper leaching circuits to recycle battery waste from 24,000 MT electric vehicles per year starting Q2 2023.
  • Newly opened EV Battery Recycling Technology Centre in the UK to develop materials technologies and perform testing, analysis and product optimisation.
  • Commenced a Feasibility Study for a UK Mega-Recycling Plant transforming battery waste from over 150,000 electric vehicles, currently the largest planned plant for the UK.
  • Extracted metals will be used to produce Cathode Active Material and will enable a circular economy for the battery value chain, significantly improving the product carbon footprint and cost in the manufacture of batteries.
  • We will adopt a hybrid approach to feed supplementing battery waste supplies with raw materials from Altilium Metals owned nickel and manganese mines in Indonesia.

Battery production will continue to rely heavily on mined materials to meet the growing demand for renewable energy storage, however recycling or “urban mining” will play an important part in supplying a portion of these materials to enable a closed-loop supply chain.
