Navin Mittal, founder and chief executive officer of Hydromet Technology Solutions, has told pv magazine their company is going to set up a 1,000 tonnes per annum (TPA) lithium-ion battery recycling plant in the Indian State of Gujarat.

The Gujarat-based extractive metallurgy technology solutions provider has already received approval from the Pollution Control Board for the plant. It plans two more such facilities, one in some other Indian state and the other overseas. The combined capacity in the three planned operations (including the Gujarat plant) will be 10,000 TPA.

The Gujarat plant will be based on patented Hy-BREC technology developed by Hydromet to recover all valuable metals present in lithium-ion batteries. The company claims its process is zero-waste, generic, and adaptable. Different forms of lithium-ion batteries like lithium cobalt oxide (LCO), lithium nickel cobalt manganese oxide (NMC), lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide (NCA), and lithium manganese oxide (LMO)—excluding those based on ferrous chemistry—can be processed using this technology.

The plant will recover metals using spent Li-ion batteries from mobile phones, laptops, and...
