Recycling & Repurposing Lithium-Ion Batteries
( 锂离子电池的回收和再利用 )

在新产品制造中使用回收材料,透过经济有效的方法保护环境

2019年10月24日

 

Currently 97 percent of all lead acid batteries in the United States are recycled. The recycling of lead acid batteries is predominantly a business-driven initiative as they are nearly 100 percent recyclable and doing so is profitable. Only between 20 and 40 percent of lithium-ion batteries on the other hand are recycled in the United States. Lithium-ion batteries are not as readily recycled and the process of recycling them is not yet economic unless they contain cobalt.

INFRASTRUCTURE & Opportunities FOR LITHIUM-ION BATTERY RECYCLING

8:30 Chairperson’s Remarks

Eric Frederickson, Director, Quality & Process Excellence, Call2Recycle, Inc.

8:35 Opportunities and Challenges of Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling

Kunal Phalpher, Chief Commercial Officer, Business Development and Operations, Li-Cycle

This presentation will explore the opportunities and challenges of lithium-ion battery recycling. With the development of megafactories for lithium-ion batteries, there is a need to recycle these batteries at a ‘mega’ scale. Li-Cycle Technology™ meets this need. Li-Cycle Technology is a low-cost, safe, and environmentally friendly solution to the global end-of-life lithium-ion battery problem. The technology can recycle all types of lithium-ion batteries with unparalleled recoveries of 80-100%.

9:05 Understanding the Regulatory Framework and Operational Challenges of Lithium Battery Recycling

Eric Frederickson, Director, Quality & Process Excellence, Call2Recycle, Inc.

What do organizations who manufacture, distribute, or use lithium-based batteries do with them at the end of their useful life? Do they understand the regulatory obligations for managing and transporting lithium batteries for disposal or recycling? Are there processes in place to ensure that the functional challenges of meeting these obligations are met? This session provides practical guidance on how to navigate these challenges, presented by the country’s leading consumer battery recycling stewardship organization.

9:35 The ReCell Center Approach to Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling

Jeff Spangenberger, Materials Recycling R&D Program Lead, Applied Materials Division, Argonne National Laboratory

The US government has determined that lithium-ion battery recycling is critical to its needs. The ReCell Center was thus created and, through collaboration with the national labs, universities, and industry, is researching technologies that will enable profitable recycling of lithium-ion batteries. This presentation will provide information about the center and how battery lifecycle stakeholders can participate.

10:05 Coffee Break in the Exhibit Hall with Poster Viewing

10:35 Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Research at the ReCell Center

Linda Gaines, PhD, Transportation System Analyst, Energy Systems Division, Argonne National Laboratory

The U.S. Department of Energy has created the ReCell Center (and is offering a Recycling Prize) to develop an economical recycling process by the time large volumes of batteries from electric vehicles and other uses reach end of life. The work will be performed at lead-lab, Argonne National Laboratory, its partner labs, Oak Ridge and NREL, and several universities. This presentation will describe research projects in the center that focus on recovering usable cathode.

11:05 PANEL DISCUSSION: Energy Focused Battery Recycling Initiatives & Progress

Moderator: Linda Gaines, PhD, Transportation System Analyst, Energy Systems Division, Argonne National Laboratory

Panelists:

Kunal Phalpher, Chief Commercial Officer, Business Development and Operations, Li-Cycle

Eric Frederickson, Director, Quality & Process Excellence, Call2Recycle, Inc.

Jeff Spangenberger, Materials Recycling R&D Program Lead, Applied Materials Division, Argonne National Laboratory

This panel will dive into the newest lithium-ion battery recycling programs in the United States. The new battery recycling infrastructure that will be laid out in the US will also be discussed.

SAFETY OF RECYCLED LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES

2:00 Chairperson’s Remarks

Steve Tolen, Chairman, SAE Secondary Battery Use Committee, President/CEO,

Indie Power System

2:05 Critical Importance of Battery Raw Material Purity in Assuring Safety and Performance of EV Batteries

Marco Romero, President & CEO, Euro Manganese, Inc.

The evolution of lithium-ion battery formulations and cathode chemistry has been driven largely by a quest to achieve greater energy density, longer cycle life, lower production costs, and reduced dependence on scarce raw materials with vulnerable supply chains and questionable provenance, such as cobalt. In order to remain stable, reliable, and safe, some of these performance advancements have resulted in batteries that require meticulous and technically challenging production processes, and much purer raw materials, free of deleterious impurities. Mr. Romero’s presentation will focus on the quest for purer battery raw materials, with specific emphasis on manganese used in NMC cathodes.

2:35 Addressing Safety for Low-Cost and Safety with End-of-Life Materials

Lauren Crandon, PhD, Researcher, OnTo Technology, LLC

This presentation will address three parts: (1) Elimination of hazards to make batteries safe for transport, which addresses half of the end-of-life liability (2) Reclamation of candidate materials with cathode-healing™ for less than $10/kg, and reclamation of the remaining materials to (3) make clean precursors with a value opportunity of $2-10/kg. For such a developed industry, the realities of a wholistic approach for sustainable (economic and otherwise) lithium-ion battery manufacturing are largely untapped. These approaches offer unique, scalable, patented methods to address it.

SECOND USE BATTERIES

3:05 Facilitating Secondary-Use and Battery Recycling

Steve Tolen, Chairman, SAE Secondary Battery Use Committee, President/CEO, Indie Power System

From Consumer Electronics to Electric Vehicle applications, the design of a battery pack holds the greatest opportunity to reduce the cost of secondary use and to increase recycling rates. Improved data and tracking of batteries would facilitate resale and transportation of batteries. This will become increasingly important as more repurposers reassemble batteries, and counterfeit batteries begin entering the market. Better data could also materially reduce the cost of preparing batteries for secondary use. Design theory will be discussed, and examples shown as to how to reduce repurposing costs, increase recycling rates, and improve transportation and recycling safety.

4:15 Value of LIB Secondary Use & Recycle

Jack Lifton, MS, Vice President, Business Development, Resource Conservation and Recycling Corporation, Pty Ltd.; CEO, Jack Lifton LLC

4:45 PANEL DISCUSSION: Ensuring Safety in Second Life Batteries

Repurposing lithium-ion batteries seems to be a great way to recycle batteries and keep materials in the market. With so many “owners” of the materials in a battery, who owns the responsibility in the event of a safety incident? How are repurposers ensuring safe second life batteries?
