As part of it’s engineering studies for processing end-of-life electric vehicle batteries at it’s Medet Hydrometallurgical Plant in Europe, a potential net savings of 2.5 kg CO2 per kg of battery recycled has been identified, which is a carbon saving of 50,000 MT per year

Materials production is responsible for approximately half of the greenhouse gas emissions from battery production, and recycled materials typically have a lower carbon footprint than the same materials from virgin sources. For example, production of recycled aluminum creates approximately 95% less greenhouse gas emissions compared to producing aluminum from natural sources. The study has looked…
