High-purity metals recovered from battery waste

Researchers at Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) have succeeded in recovering important metals – lithium, cobalt and nickel – from battery waste with nearly 100% purity. Recovered metals will be needed increasingly in the manufacture of batteries, and in the future especially in batteries of electric vehicles. Researchers have been able to extract cobalt at 99.6 percent purity, nickel at 99.7% purity, and lithium at 99.9% purity from battery waste.
