UK recycling firm in South Korea battery project

Posted on 18 Apr 2020 and read 742 times
UK recycling firm in South Korea battery project Cambridgeshire-based Aurelius Environmental is about to begin working with a South Korean company on an innovative process for recovering valuable metals from electric-vehicle (EV) batteries (www.aureliustechnology.com) .

A visit to South Korea in September 2018 — organised by Enterprise Europe Network through the Global Business Innovation Programme — created this opportunity for Aurelius, which has won £620,000 in Eureka network funding to pursue the project.

It has teamed up with Cellgen Co Ltd to develop a lithium-ion battery-recycling demonstrator (the companies were introduced at a match-making event during a visit to South Korea in September 2018).

The latter will supply lithium recovery technology to be incorporated in a process for EV battery re-use and recycling.

This will include testing, dismantling and destruction of battery packs using technology developed and/or sourced by Aurelius in partnership with the University of Cambridge.

Athan Fox, technology director at Aurelius Environmental, said: “Electric transport systems will rely heavily on battery and critical raw-material supply chains; we are well placed to be a key player in these fields.

"As the EV batteries reach end-of-life in the UK over the course of the next decade, raw materials such as lithium, nickel, cobalt and more must be extracted, recycled and re-used.

"These and other collaboration opportunities are accelerating our international growth.”
