Battery Recycling

closed-loop recycling

We close the loop for your battery materials and batteries

You have full control over your recyclable battery materials throughout the battery's entire life cycle. We recycle your production material and feed it directly back into your active-material manufacturing process. We take any problematic batteries off you, collect old batteries, and feed your recyclables back into your battery-production system in double quick time.

with optimal performance

We achieve the highest recovery rates with the smallest CO2 footprint

Using the latest process technology, we recover the residual energy and all materials from the batteries. We don't burn or melt anything down. All recyclable materials are returned to the new-battery production process.

Near you

We come to you

We quickly set up a Europe-wide network and can assist you on site with minimal logistics.

MAXIMISIMG THE PRODUCTIVITY OF YOUR BATTERY MATERIALS

You've invested in valuable materials, and we'll increase your return

Whether it be production material not meeting specifications, or problematic, old batteries scattered across Europe, we ensure you can immediately start using these recyclable materials again profitably. We collect, fully recycle and swiftly deliver your recyclables wherever you need them in order to start using them productively again. The material does not remain 'stagnant', but rather earns you an income – forever and ever.

Why Librec?

Key benefits

'Closed-loop'

We close the loop with unprecedented recovery rates of over 90% for all battery recyclables. These include cobalt, nickel, lithium, manganese, copper, aluminum, graphite and electrolyte, as well as the battery's casing and electronics.

Big CO2 savings

We melt nothing, burn nothing and generate zero emissions. The remaining energy from the batteries and our solar power cover more than half of the process energy. The Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology has rated our our process with top marks in its life cycle assessment.

Certificate

Being certified by us enables you to guarantee your car customers sustainable, climate-neutral 'closed-loop' battery recycling.

You control your recyclables

You can leave your production material or batteries with us, or have your recycled materials returned immediately - it's entirely your decision.

Maximum return (ROI)

We swiftly return your recyclables to you so you can immediately start using them profitably again.

No dealer network necessary

We attend on site and collect the batteries for you.

Accident or problematic battery?

No problem; we take care of collection and administration for you with rescue services and insurance.

We come to you

We are building a Europe-wide network, and will assist you on site with customised transport solutions and minimal logistics.

'Second life'

We give you the choice of reconditioning your battery for a 'second life' and building new batteries from existing cells.

E-mobility is booming

Goodbye fossil fuels - hello renewable energy

Global battery production is growing exponentially. The gigantic quantities of the required raw materials are mined all over the world with serious environmental destruction and questionable social standards, transported over long distances, then destroyed in smelting furnaces or landfill once they have served their purpose. Librec's 'closed-loop' battery recycling feeds the recyclables back into new batteries and - together with renewable electricity - facilitates completely sustainable e-mobility.
