AGL pairs with battery recycling startup to examine viability of recycling at its Hunter Energy Hub

AGL and Australian battery recycling startup, Renewable Metals, have signed a deal to investigate the viability of building a lithium battery recycling facility at AGL’s envisioned Hunter Energy Hub, formally one of Australia’s most significant coal centres Australia’s biggest generator and retailer, AGL, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Renewable Metals to develop a pre-feasibility study for a lithium battery recycling facility in the New South Wales Hunter region. Renewable Metals, a startup, just recently completed its battery recycling pilot program in Western Australia demonstrating its innovative processing method, which it says operates at low temperatures and with no sodium sulfate or other chemically precipitated byproducts. Australia’s battery recycling industry is nascent, and faces a significant hurdle due to the nation’s slow uptake of electric vehicles (EVs), which would be the most obvious feedstock.
