SF Motors gets new development centre: Sokon Industry’s recently founded subsidiary (we reported) will invest 10.7m dollars in a new site in Michigan. It will house some 150 employees there to further develop electric cars for the U.S. market.

Battery recycling better than 2nd-life? EV batteries discarded by 2035 will have a total capacity of 65 GWh. Lux Research says it would be better to recycle them, then use them for energy storage projects. Reusing the batteries may initially be cheaper than buying new ones, but capacity loss and a shorter remaining lifespan turn that into a naïve miscalculation.

Battery recycling process: American Manganese has filed a patent application for a new method to recover cathode materials like lithium, cobalt, nickel, aluminium and manganese from used EV batteries. Working with Kemetco Research, scientists now aim to further optimise the potential of the recycling process.

Hybrid ferries for River Thames: Norwegian Electric Systems (NES) signed a deal with Remontowa Shipbuilding in Gdansk for the delivery of hybrid drivetrains. These are destined for two ferries that will commute between Woolwich and North Woolwich on River Thames.
