We are excited to launch a new resource that we are calling the ‘Battery Recyclopedia‘ – a one-stop shop for information on lithium-ion battery recycling, battery materials, and building a low-carbon, circular supply chain for critical minerals.
As the world rapidly transitions to clean energy, we recognize the crucial role that responsible battery management plays in decarbonization and electrification of the economy.
Our aim is to create an accessible and informative resource on lithium battery recycling, and if you have feedback or suggestions for future explainers and terms to explore, reach out to us at: Info@AquaMetals.com
