NV Li-ion Battery Recycling Plant Progess Reported (Ind. Report)
American Battery Technology
Date: 2021-04-14
Incline Village, Nevada-headquartered American Battery Technology Company reports it's previously announced planned 60,000-square-foot lithium-ion battery recycling facility in Fernle, Vevada,is expected to break ground soon.

Initially, the plant would recycle 20,000 metric tpy of lithium-ion batteries then scale up to handling 100,000 metric tpy, matching the number of lithium-ion batteries recycled in all of 2018 globally, according to London-based Circular Energy Storage. In the U.S. alone, only 5 pct of all spent battery cells are recycled, according to the U.S. DOE. According to the release, ABTC plans to create a "circular economy for battery metals" using its clean technology platform. The company has a three-pronged approach to supply battery metals -- lithium-ion battery recycling, extraction technology and primary resources.
