Infinite EV: recovering valuable materials for next generation batteries


Recovering valuable materials for next generation batteries


Towards a circular economy for EV batteries

Sustainable end of life treatment

Our ambition is to enable infinite EV for a sustainable energy future.

The traditional economy takes materials from earth, makes products from them, and eventually throws them away as waste. The process is linear. A circular economy does away with this linear take-make-waste system. Instead, it focuses on reusing, repurposing, and recycling products and materials. A circular economy is underpinned by a transition to renewable energy and materials, and it decouples economic activity from the consumption of finite resources. This approach creates a sustainable system that is good for business, people, and the environment.

We partner with the automotive industry to create a circular economy for EV batteries. First, we aim to reuse batteries in their original application like hybrid batteries. Second, if we cannot reuse batteries, we repurpose them for new applications like energy storage. Finally, when batteries reach end of life, we recycle them to recover valuable materials that are used to make new batteries. This let's us circulate products and materials at their highest value and eliminate waste.

How it works

So, how do we keep batteries from ending up in landfill? We partner with the mobility industry to create a one-stop shop for the lifecycle management of their batteries. When a battery no longer functions properly in a vehicle, we first conduct a detailed safety inspection. Then we test the performance of the battery pack and modules using our HealthCheck diagnostic. This will determine the next-best use of the battery modules.

Our first aim is to remanufacture the battery so that it can be reused in the vehicle. Over time, the pack will degrade so it is important to monitor its health. When the modules can no longer meet the demands of the vehicle, they may be repurposed for stationary energy storage systems, whether they enter their second life. By comparison, energy storage for commercial and industrial customers is a much gentler life for the batteries compared to that of a traction battery in a vehicle. Remote monitoring ensures that they meet the performance standards of the energy storage system.

Eventually, the batteries will degrade to the point where they can no longer be safely and reliably used for any form of energy storage. At this stage, they are recycled and valuable materials are recovered as inputs for next generation batteries. Throughout the process, we ensure full traceability and zero landfill of battery packs and modules.

Late review but a massive thank you to John and his team for resurrecting my 2007 Prius. John knows batteries like Google! So knowledgeable and informative. Patient and accommodating. He managed to get me a refurbished battery pack considering he has such a long list of customers. No more triangle of death. Thank you John. The car is still running smoothly since the battery pack change 2 years ago!

I called John because I had some concerns regarding my lexus Rx400h hybrid, it seems like I was stressed for no reason. What a fantastic guy he is, he took time to explain everything and the info was clear and on point. Guys he is not after your money but he is after providing a great service. This day and age not a lot people honest like John, I can assure you that.

Extremely happy with the level of service from John and Joel. These guys have a deep, technical knowledge of Hybrids and batteries, and they took the time and care to answer our questions. Joel even showed us the real-time ECU data during a test drive with his laptop once the new battery was installed. Very competitive on price and better warranty terms than Toyota. Highly recommended.
