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.
