Policy Implications

Policy Implications

The LIBAT project aims at the pilot-scale demonstration of an innovative process for the recycling of primary lithium batteries (Li (0) / MnO2 batteries). The proposed process integrates a mechanical pre-treatment with a hydrometallurgical treatment in order to recover plastic materials, ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals. The project will allow to increase and reach a recycling percentage greater than 50%.

Life-LiBat at Going Green - CARE INNOVATION 2018

The Going Green - CARE INNOVATION 2018 conference and exhibition on Electronics and the Environment took place in Schoenbrunn Palace Conference Centre Vienna (Austria). This Symposium is the only platform for presenting the up-to-date progress on sustainable development and the development of eco-efficient electr(on)ic & automotive products.
