Lithion Recycling

Before the Lithion’s innovation, there was no complete solution for recycling lithium-ion batteries in a sustainable way. The percentage of battery components recovered by previous methods was small and the environmental impact was enormous. That’s now a thing of the past, thanks to the Lithion team who has developed and marketed a solution to recover 95% of lithium-ion battery components, positioning the company as an industry leader. At Lithion, we transform today’s waste into tomorrow’s strategic materials that will be reintegrated into the value chain, contributing to the electrification of transportation in Quebec and around the world.
