Ascend Elements: Bringing sustainable closed loop recycling to the Li-ion battery industry
Li-ion batteries are powering the future, but to ensure that future is sustainable Ascend Elements has created a novel closed loop recycling process, recovering high value battery components for reuse without the need to reprocess raw materials. They are extending the life cycle of each battery to ensure efficient sustainable usage for a greener tomorrow that still meets the power demands of human progress.
"Ascend Elements is committed to changing the dynamics for processing end of life lithium ion batteries. Our technology incorporates the best of hydrometallurgical and direct recycling process that gives us an advantage to capture more than 95% of the weight of the batteries. The beauty of our proprietary co-precipitation process is that we accept a mixed input of battery material chemistries from consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and even grid-scale energy storage lithium ion devices to produce a defined premium grade cathode output. We anticipate strategic growth now backed by TDK Ventures, along with Orbia Ventures."
