Ecobat Expands Battery Recycling Capabilities with Arizona Facility

Ecobat Expands Battery Recycling with Arizona Facility

On February 20, 2023, Ecobat, a leading battery recycling company, announced that it is building its first North American lithium-ion battery recycling facility, which will mark its third facility overall. Initially generating 10,000 tons approximate of salvaged material yearly, the new facility located in Casa Grande, Arizona, will be expanded to meet the increasing need for lithium-ion battery recycling.

Through diagnostics, sorting, shredding, and material separation, Ecobat Casa Grande will repurpose lithium-ion batteries that have reached their end of life to yield a concentrated black mass made of the valuable materials in the batteries. It will be situated one mile from the established Ecobat Resources Arizona facility that has been producing anodes for 15 years, using cutting-edge technology and a highly skilled workforce. The launch is anticipated for the Q3 of this year.

Ecobat holds prominent ISO certifications in safety and health, environmental, quality, and energy management systems. The company's expansion into the North American market demonstrates its dedication to offering sustainable recycling solutions for advanced battery technology.

CEO of Ecobat, Marcus Randolph, shared, "We are thrilled to grow our global lithium-ion battery recycling footprint with a new facility in Casa Grande, Arizona." He added, "This facility, like our lithium-ion battery recycling facilities in Germany and the United Kingdom, represents a significant milestone in Ecobat's strategy to grow our lithium-ion battery recycling business to a scale, similar to our world-leading lead battery recycling business."
