UK-based clean technology group, Altilium, and vehicle recycling specialist Synetiq have partnered to recycle EV batteries in the UK.

Altilium is a group that focuses on supporting the transition to net zero. Synetiq currently handles damaged EVs and now batteries recovered by the company will be processed at Altilium’s technology center in Devon, UK. The process will work to recover valuable raw materials, such as lithium and nickel for direct use in the production of new batteries.

Altilium claims to recover over 95% of battery metals all while reducing carbon emissions and costs compared to traditional methods. The company also has plans to construct the UK’s largest battery recycling and refining plant in Teesside, which will have the capacity to process waste batteries from 150,000 EVs per year.
