Empowering EV LIB Recyclers with Targeted Impurity Removal

Single-pass Impurity Removal With No Byproducts & Optimized Yield

How it Works

Selective Metal Recovery

ElectraMet’s electrochemical process selectively isolates and recovers bulk and trace copper and manganese impurities from lithium, cobalt, and nickel streams to optimize the value of finished materials to battery grade specifications. ElectraMet extracts impurities in a single pass, eliminating rework, yield loss, and byproducts typical with sulfide precipitation, ion exchange, or membrane technologies. Impurities removed can be sold for profit and enable increased profitability, circularity, and sustainability. ElectraMet provides a competitive edge to battery recyclers by allowing them to maximize their product quality and value.

Avoid Product Loss

Conventional impurity removal methods have a fundamental flaw; while they have selectivity for copper and manganese, they also target cobalt and nickel, resulting in a yield loss of up to 5%. ElectraMet uses targeted electrochemistry and material science to isolate and recover impurities with greater than 99.99% selectivity. Eliminate questions about rework, production bottlenecks, and feedstock impact on process viability by selecting ElectraMet as your impurity removal specialist. 

Achieve Battery-Grade Specifications

Lithium-ion batteries contain an assortment of high-value materials. ElectraMet balances impurity removal with recycling economics to eliminate rework and assure specification with the goal of optimizing operating margin at your facility. ElectraMet delivers specification regardless of the target, so battery-grade specification for our NMC recycling customers is not an issue but a reality.

EV Battery Recycling FAQs

ElectraMet consistently outperforms specification in delivering less than 0.5 mg/L for both copper and manganese impurities.

ElectraMet’s process is 99.99% specific to copper and/or manganese in the EV Battery Recycling process. Unless specifically targeting cobalt or nickel, it is not removed.

ElectraMet removes manganese and copper impurities across a wide pH range. More information is required to assess implementation of an ElectraMet system.
