RecycLiCo Battery Materials and Nanoramic Laboratories announced a strategic collaboration with the goal of optimizing the complete life cycle of lithium-ion batteries.
Nanoramic will contribute its discarded Neocarbonix lithium-ion battery cathode electrodes, notable for their high-performance, low-cost nanocarbon mesh binding structure, for testing with RecycLiCo’s proprietary lithium-ion battery recycling process, which has proven up to 99% extraction of lithium, nickel, manganese, and cobalt from conventional waste cathode materials.
The collaboration aims to attain mutual recognition of the future integration of Nanoramic and RecycLiCo technologies in commercial operations.
Nanoramic’s NMP-free and PVDF-free electrodes offer a solution to potential bans on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in lithium-ion batteries. By leveraging RecycLiCo’s expertise in conversion of waste cathodes into valuable battery-grade materials, both parties are working to close the loop by returning the recycled product back to Nanoramic for cell production and further electrochemical analysis.
Nanoramic Laboratories was spun out of MIT in 2009; Nanoramic’s licensing business model is backed by 14 years of research with more than 200 patents granted and pending.
Neocarbonix technology creates electrodes with an advanced 3-D nanoscopic carbon binding structure, providing reduced cost and greater power, energy density, and cycle life performance compared to traditional battery designs.
