American Battery Technology Company Receives Contract from US DOE for $20M Project to Accelerate Commercialization of Next-Generation Advanced Battery Recycling Technologies
Advancing Battery Recycling Technologies for a Sustainable Future
As part of a multi-partner industry collaboration, American Battery Technology Company (ABTC) has secured a $20 million contract grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to accelerate the development and commercialization of next-generation advanced battery recycling technologies. This groundbreaking project aims to revolutionize the lithium-ion battery recycling process, enabling the production of low-cost and environmentally friendly critical battery materials.
Driving Economic Competitiveness and Environmental Sustainability
ABTC and its partners will focus on the development and deployment of three disruptive advanced separation and processing technologies. These innovations are expected to enhance economic competitiveness, reduce environmental impact, and facilitate the reintegration of a higher percentage of battery components into the domestic battery manufacturing market. By recovering additional products and minimizing energy, water consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions, ABTC aims to create a more sustainable and economically viable battery recycling industry.
Implementing Cutting-Edge Recycling Techniques
ABTC is currently in the process of implementing the first phase of its commercial-scale integrated lithium-ion battery recycling technologies. Located at its facility in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, these innovative processes utilize strategic de-manufacturing and targeted chemical extraction methods. Unlike conventional battery recycling methods that rely on high-temperature smelting or non-strategic shredding systems, ABTC’s approach ensures high yields, low costs, and a significantly reduced environmental footprint.
Through this ambitious project, ABTC and its partners are paving the way for a more sustainable and efficient battery recycling industry. By prioritizing research, development, and commercialization of advanced technologies, ABTC is positioning itself as a leader in the field, committed to driving positive change and contributing to a greener future.
