Li-Cycle partners with Daimler Truck North America on recycling Lithium-ion batteries

Li-Cycle Holdings and Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) have a partnership to recycle lithium-ion batteries from DTNA electric vehicles that reach the end of their life cycle. (Earlier post.) Recycling lithium-ion batteries is part of DTNA’s plans to maximize battery lifespans and reduce material waste to tackle global sustainability challenges.

DTNA’s strategy emphasizes repairing, remanufacturing, repurposing, and recycling lithium-ion battery materials.

Daimler Truck North America designs, engineers, manufactures and markets medium- and heavy-duty trucks, school buses, vehicle chassis and their associated technologies and components under the Freightliner, Western Star, Thomas Built Buses, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp and Detroit brands. Daimler Truck North America is a subsidiary of Daimler Truck Holding AG (DTG).

Li-Cycle leverages its Spoke & Hub Technologies to recycle all different types of lithium-ion batteries. At Spokes, or pre-processing facilities, the company recycles battery manufacturing scrap and end-of-life batteries to produce black mass, a powder-like substance which contains a number of valuable metals, including lithium, nickel and cobalt. At future Hubs, or post-processing facilities, the company plans to process black mass to produce critical battery-grade materials, including lithium carbonate, for the lithium-ion battery supply chain.
