Battery Deactivation and Direct Recycling to Improve Cost and Safety
OnTo has developed Cathode-Healing as a low-cost recycling method to reuse lithium-ion materials. Also, end-of-life batteries have unpredictable characteristics due to state of health issues, and OnTo developed a deactivation process to render batteries safe for transportation and storage, benign chemistry to eliminate reactivity in batteries, even the worst-case scenarios with charged batteries. Dr. Sloop will update progress with deactivation and cathode-healing of lithium-ion batteries including performance on lithium iron phosphate, early-stage scrap conservation, design for recycling on the material and cell level, and application scenarios for battery deactivation.
ReCell’s Developments in Direct Recycling
As the ReCell Center moves into its fourth year, it has expanded its program scope to cover Direct Recycling of Material, Advanced Resource Recovery, Design for Sustainability, and Modeling and Analysis. The Center continues to scale up its existing technologies and develop new technologies, applying them to the processing of both manufacturing scrap and end-of-life batteries. The presentation will highlight the expansion and progress of the Center.
Comprehensive Characterization of Shredded Lithium-ion Battery Recycling Material
Samples from an industrial recycling process of dry-shredded lithium-ion battery (LIB) materials were analyzed concerning the elemental composition and (organic) compound speciation. Deep understanding of the base material for LIB recycling was obtained by identification and analysis of transition metal stoichiometry, current collector metals, base electrolyte and electrolyte additive residues, aging marker molecules, and polymer binder fingerprints. Including a comprehensive characterization of shredded recycling material. Reverse engineering for tracing back the main electrode and electrolyte chemistries to pristine materials.

PLENARY KEYNOTE PROGRAM
Delivering on Global Demand: Overcoming the Obstacles to Success
This international panel of the key OEMs, Battery Manufacturers, Raw Materials Providers, and Investment and Institutional Experts will take a deep dive into how the international battery community will deliver on the surging global demand for EVs. Addressing how the industry will achieve the volumes predicted is a key component to the success or failure of adoption of EVs around the world. The many issues that need to be addressed will include improvements needed to the supply chain, manufacturing capacity, mining, recycling methods, and regulatory compliance. The global battery industry is at a very important crossroads now that market demand has arrived. Will the industry be able to deliver? This unprecedented assembly of global experts will answer those questions and provide insight into the pathway forward.
Elemental Analysis of Metals in Recycled Battery Materials by ICP-MS/MS
Batteries often contain a large number of metals, such as Li, Co, Ni, Cu, Mn, Fe, etc. Recycling batteries could reduce environmental pollution, and produce Ni, Co, Mn, and Li salts, as well as ternary anode materials and precursors, which can be used directly in the production of lithium battery cells, which is of great significance in building a closed loop industry chain, effectively recovering the cost of batteries. Labs wanting to analyze recycled batteries will learn the best way to analyze their samples.
Hydrometallurgical Recycling of Lithium-ion Battery Materials
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 presentation 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.

Research Project "Fluxlicon": Barriers and Solutions for Stationary Second-Life Battery Systems
As electromobility ramps up, the relevance of a functioning circular economy increases. In addition to recycling, the circular economy also includes strategies that extend the useful life of battery systems. These strategies also include re-use, describing the further use of battery systems in second-life applications. The most relevant second-life applications are stationary battery storage systems, used for various grid services. Numerous barriers exist during implementation of these. The most important solution approaches to overcome these barriers are addressed in the presentation.
EV Battery Value Chain: Second-Life Battery
Honda’s 2050 Triple Zero Action Plan (clean energy, carbon neutrality, and resource circulation) is significantly aided through product electrification and batteries. Batteries play a role in each of the Triple Zero Action Plan elements with resource circulation contributing throughout the value chain. Honda is practicing resource circulation with lithium-ion batteries and reuse focusing on grid-scale deployment and, when possible, coupling with clean energy.

GLOBAL MARKET DEMAND FOR BATTERY RAW MATERIALS
Creating a Circular Battery Supply Chain to Reduce Carbon Emissions
As the landscape of the battery supply chain continues to change, only a focus on sustainable solutions will be able to meet the changing needs required to close the loop. A commitment to both recycling and cathode production is at the forefront of a circular battery supply chain and will assist in carbon reduction efforts. Learn about recycling initiatives that are focused on maximum material recovery. In addition, we’ll discuss a method of cathode production technology that significantly reduces the carbon footprint compared to traditional methods.
SUPPLY CHAIN SUSTAINABILITY
Acquisition versus Sustainability for Lithium Battery Elements
Previously, I have talked about critical elements and sustainability in the context of lithium (ion) batteries. This presentation discusses acquisition of these elements in required amounts and quality and what it will take to sustain the industry’s use of Li, F, P, Co, Ni, Mn, Cu, Al, Si, and Cgraphite. Needs per GWh, modes of acquisition, and can sustainability be approached are questions addressed. Also discussed: energy costs of acquiring these elements, incorporating them into a battery, energy delivered versus the cost of replacing “spent” batteries, and the ability of recycling and reuse to improve the energy and materials balance.
Battery Materials Flows for Recycling
There has been much analysis of supply chains for battery raw materials. But flows of end-of-life material and manufacturing scrap have not received nearly as much attention. This material is a crucial factor in current and future material supply, and requires careful analysis. Many companies claim that they recycle batteries, but operations they perform differ widely from simply sorting material and passing along to another company, to actually processing and recovering -materials suitable for use in new batteries. In addition, manufacturing scrap, which is currently available in much larger quantity, is often added into the mix. Much of the material in the US and Europe is eventually exported and not recycled locally at all. This presentation will provide some quantitative estimate of these complex materials flows.

PLENARY KEYNOTE PROGRAM
If a Lithium-ion Cell Can Operate for More Than 6 Months at 85°C How Long Can It Last at Ambient Temperature?
In a few of our recent papers, we have presented Li-ion cell designs with liquid electrolytes that give astounding lifetime at temperatures as high as 85°C. In fact, we have been testing these cells now at 100°C and they are operating well for more than one month so far. I will discuss what is required to make such awesome cells and then consider what their lifetime at ambient temperature might be. I will show that the energy density of these cells is very reasonable and that Co-free moderate-nickel designs also work equally well.
Next-Generation Batteries - An Update on Li Metal Battery and All Solid-State Battery
