The battery recycling industry is starting to take off. Originally, companies recycled Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries from mobile devices in relatively small quantities. While this still accounts for the majority of the market, the huge growth in EVs and increase in materials prices plus concerns regarding supply has driven development of Li-ion battery recycling technologies. With new battery plants planned by companies including General Motors, Ford, Tesla, Toyota, Hyundai and Panasonic open over the next few years, lithium-ion battery production will increase greatly (with >1.2 million tons of lithium-ion batteries reaching end of life by 2030), presenting a significant opportunity for recycling.
