Book Description

With increasing market share of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) in the secondary battery market and their applications in electric vehicles, the number of spent LIBs grows daily. This presents a unique business opportunity for recovering and recycling valuable metals from the spent lithium-ion cathode materials. This book provides a comprehensive review of the available hydrometallurgical technologies for recycling spent lithium-ion cathode active materials. The aim is to raise awareness of LIB recycling, provide comprehensive knowledge of hydrometallurgical recycling of lithium cathode active materials, and promote an environmentally friendlier hydrometallurgical recycling process.

• Summarizes current recycling processes, challenges, and perspectives.

• Offers a comprehensive review of current commercialized LIB recycling companies.

• Showcases an innovative closed-loop hydrometallurgical recycling process to recycle lithium cathode materials.

• Provides detailed modelling and economic analysis of several hydrometallurgical recycling processes.

• Features practical cases and data developed by the authors.

Offering the most up-to-date information on LIB material recycling, this book is aimed at researchers and professionals in materials, chemical, electrical, and mechanical engineering, as well as chemists working with batteries.
