Solvay and Veolia partner to renew the life cycle for electric car batteries

Solvay and Veolia have announced a partnership on a circular economy consortium to offer new solutions that promise better resource efficiency for critical metals used in lithium ion electric vehicle batteries.

Solvay's role in this consortium is to optimise the extraction and purification of critical metals such as cobalt, nickel and lithium and transform them into high-purity raw materials for new batteries, ready for another fresh start.
