AkkuSer is currently developing a new recycling process for the low-grade cobalt Li-ion batteries. This process will be a modified version of the current Dry-Technology method. This mechanical process consists of several crushing stages followed by magnetic and mechanical separation methods. The new processing line is expected to be ready and running in the first half of 2019.
Low-grade cobalt Lithium-Ion batteries is the fastest growing battery type. These can be found on devices such as power tools, electric bicycles and other electric mobility. Also the batteries from (H)EVs belong to this group.
