Altilium Metals has been awarded funds from the UK Government’s Automotive Transformation Fund for a feasibility study and decision-ready business case to develop a large scale manufacturing facility for recycling end-of-life electric vehicle batteries to support a electrified vehicle supply chain

With this new award of £223,097, Altilium Metals has reached a milestone of USD 1 million backing so far in 2022 from the UK Government to develop its battery recycling technology for at scale recovery of cathode metals. The Automotive Transformation Fund is delivered by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) and partners, Innovate UK, the…

Appointment of Consultant Company Hatch for the Commercial and Engineering Study for the Retrofit of the MEDET Hydrometallurgical Plant for the processing of Lithium-ion Battery Waste

To complement the internal studies by Altilium Metals in the retrofit of its Solvent Extraction-Electrowinning (SX-EW) plant at its MEDET Copper tailings resource in Bulgaria, it has appointed Hatch to develop mass balances, process flows, detailed equipment lists, economic model, including OPEX and CAPEX as well as a green house gas analysis of the plant.…

Altilium Metals Greentech Startup Altiltech has been awarded £500,000 from UK National Government (SMART Innovate Award) and UK Local Government (Green Innovation Fund) to further develop it’s novel technology for recycling of end-of-life electric vehicle (EV) batteries

Altilitech has developed a closed loop process with no direct carbon emission to recover critical and scarce metals lithium, nickel and cobalt for reuse in lithium-ion batteries. Recycling spent batteries reduces carbon emissions by 38% and material costs by 35% compared to virgin mining, lowering EV battery costs and increasing adoption of EVs. A UK…

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…

Memorandum of Understanding signing for supply of 10,000 MT per year of end-of-life electric vehicle battery “black mass” as feedstock to Altilium Metals first recycling plant in Europe

Once an Electric Vehicle battery reaches the end of its useful life, the battery pack can be collected, dismantled, and shredded. The shredded material is then processed to produce so-called “black mass”, which consists of high amounts of lithium, manganese, cobalt, and nickel metals. This black mass is the feedstock to the Altilium Metals recycling…
