Battery Recycling Infographic – May 2023

May 2023

See below for our Battery Recycling Infographic, May 2023. As you will see, this features market developments in the Battery Recycling space, and draws on data from our Battery Recycling Capacity Database and our Battery Recycling Quarterly Outlook .

The Battery Recycling Capacity Database tracks battery recycling annual capacity including plant locations, recycling input and output. Click here to request a demo of our Battery Recycling Capacity Database

The Battery Recycling Quarterly Outlook provides a long-term outlook for global scrap materials available for battery recycling by region, battery chemistry and feedstock covering end-of-life energy stationary storage. Click here to request a demo of our Battery Recycling Quarterly Outlook.


Highlights from the latest Battery Recycling Capacity Database:
  • In China, Miracle Golden Tiger Cobalt doubled its plant capacity to 100,000 tonnes of recycling inputs per year in Ganzhou, China by adding a 50,000-tonne LFP battery recycling capacity in April 2023.
  • Recyclus Group, a subsidiary of Technology Minerals, announced that it received final approval from the Environmental Agency to process up to 22,000 tonnes of EoL batteries per year at its pre-treatment processing plant in Wolverhampton, UK. It’s considered to be the UK’s first industrial scale battery recycling plant.
  • Glencore announced it would partner with FCC Ámbito and Iberdrola to build a plant for lithium-ion battery recycling and second-life solutions in Spain. The plant will be operated by FCC Ámbito.

Global battery recycling pre-treatment capacity reached around 1.7 million tonnes of recycling inputs per year as of the end of April 2023, the monthly increase mainly came from China with expansions of the existing plants.

Why do we track the battery recycling market?

The battery recycling market is gaining traction, as EV value chains evolve towards long-term sustainability goals amid future raw material shortages and environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns. We track the battery recycling market to provide insights into how the market is growing at global, regional and country levels, on the back of EV demand, legislation and battery recycling company strategies. We also track this market to provide insights into current and future battery recycling plant capacity across regions, and provide information on battery recycling inputs and outputs.

As part of the work involved to produce our battery recycling reports, we publish a monthly infographic to offer our followers regular insights into how the battery recycling market is developing on a global scale. We include news highlights as well as insights into global battery recycling pre-treatment capacity and regional battery recycling pre-treatment capacity share.
