New power from old cells: Audi and Umicore develop closed loop battery recycling
  • Car manufacturer and materials technology and recycling group test a closed loop for high-voltage car batteries
  • 95 percent of valuable battery materials can be recycled
  • The partners are developing a raw materials bank concept for these recovered raw materials 

Milestone reached: Audi and Umicore have successfully completed phase one of their strategic research cooperation for battery recycling. The two partners are developing a closed loop for components of high-voltage batteries that can be used again and again. Particularly valuable materials are set to become available in a raw materials bank.
