Li-Cycle starts recycling in Magdeburg

The North American company Li-Cycle has commissioned its first European recycling plant for lithium-ion batteries in Magdeburg. The plant is to have an annual capacity of up to 10,000 tons of battery material. The start of production of a second line with the same capacity is still planned for 2023, he said.

Processing without unloading and disassembly

According to Li-Cycle, the plant is the largest in the company’s current portfolio and one of the largest of its kind in Europe. The group uses technology that allows it to directly use all types of lithium-ion battery waste, including complete electric vehicle battery packs, without the need for unloading, disassembly or thermal processing, it said.

Annual capacity of 81,000 tons planned

Germany represents the largest market for battery production waste, so Li-Cycle expects a significant amount of waste lithium-ion batteries there for all of Europe. According to the company’s own information, it is aiming for an annual recycling capacity of 81,000 tons.
