Li-ion battery recycling is a dynamic and more attractive industry, for sure. With the rapid adoption of EVs, the demand for Li-ion batteries as well as Li-ion battery recycling will grow significantly in the coming decades. Currently, most of the recycling companies are located in China, for example: Brunp, Huayou Cobalt, GEM, and Europe, such as Umicore, Akkuser, Accurec. Chinese recycling companies are at an advantage. They benefit from an already large battery market, enjoy extensive support from the state and have good access to the high volume of material to be recycled.

Most of the recycling companies are gradually increasing their recycling capacity to accommodate the growing volume of end-of-life batteries. Still, it again depends on the investment required to increase the capacity.

To build a new recycling plant or increase the capacity of an existing plant needs high investment. High investment, the right strategies, and the rapid increase of recycling capacity are the key. Recycling players with high investment capability and the right approach may benefit. Therefore, today’s smaller players or newcomers can increase their market shares, and the leaders can see their market shares decreasing, all depending on their approach.

Industry News

In September 2019, Umicore and LG Chem Ltd. (South Korea) entered into a multi-year strategic supply agreement for the supply of 125,000 metric tons of nickel, manganese, and cobalt cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries to LG Chem Ltd. The agreement became effective from January 2020. Under this agreement, Umicore is also expected to recycle LG Chem Ltd.’s cathode material production waste. Currently, both companies are undergoing discussions on long-term cooperation in battery recycling. The agreement is expected to help Umicore enhance its competitive edge in the battery recycling market globally.
