Lithium, nickel, cobalt, copper, neodymium, and dysprosium are just a few of the critical materials found in lithium-ion batteries and Rare Earth permanent magnets, which are the fundamental building blocks of a sustainable energy future, and an important driver in reducing global greenhouse emissions.
Momentum is committed to developing technological solutions that innovate the way the world addresses waste and reuse needs.
Recycling end-of-life devices and battery waste requires a distributed approach due to the distributed nature of devices and supply chains.
- Formulated and tested in collaboration with the Oak Ridge Laboratory
- First-of-its-kind technology to effectively deal with the growing stream of lithium-ion battery waste that changes chemistries
- Small footprint and modular technology allows for co-location of recycling facilities at or near the source of the material
- Co-location drastically reduces the environmental impact of shipping large quantities of electronic waste to centralized recycling facilities
