Chinese Patent Offices Grants Patent for RecycLiCo’s Battery Recycling Invention
RecycLiCo Battery Materials Inc. (“RecycLiCo” or “Company“), a company focused on the development of novel lithium-ion battery recycling and upcycling technologies and its R&D partner, Kemetco Research Inc. (“Kemetco”), are pleased to announce the book, ‘Hydrometallurgical Recycling of Lithium-Ion Battery Materials’ written by the Vice President of Kemetco Research, co-inventor of the RecycLiCo patented process, and recipient of a Geneva Innovation Award, Joey Jung, Ph.D.
The 408-page book provides a comprehensive review of available hydrometallurgical technologies for recycling lithium-ion battery cathode material. It features the experimental work over the past six years that has led to the development of RecycLiCo’s advanced and novel lithium-ion battery material recycling and upcycling process. The book includes the fundamentals of recycling lithium-ion battery cathode materials, compares predominant recycling methods, and focuses on methods that increase efficiencies and lower carbon footprint.
The book will be published with the CRC Press, an American publishing group specializing in producing technical books with a strong international presence and peer-reviewed by respected academic specialists. The hard copy is available for pre-order now (click here to pre-order).
