Lithium & Cobalt Recycling Market Scope
Lithium and Cobalt Recycling uses chemical and hydrometallurgical processes in which lithium-ion is shredded into a powder followed by pyro-metallurgy or hydrometallurgy for the extraction of individual elements for resale. This ensures a reduction in environmental footprint and advanced raw material interdependency while bringing down new battery expenditures. This market is anticipated to expand exponentially in the forecast years owing to improved recycling infrastructure, robust government policies, process sustainability, and mounting demand for electric vehicles.
