Lithium-ion Battery Recycling
Get a sustainable, economical service that recycles all the critical metals in LiBs to return high-quality battery precursor and cathode active materials.
The unique Coherent battery materials recycling process offers a pragmatic path to lowering battery manufacturing costs while enabling battery and EV makers to achieve economies of scale with a positive environmental impact.
Lithium-ion Battery Recycling - Key Benefits
Coherent partners with battery manufacturers and OEMS to receive end-of-life batteries and production scraps, efficiently extract key metals, and then deliver back pCAM and CAM that meet customer specifications.
The Coherent streamlined hydrometallurgical advanced recycling process (SHARP) technology recovers over 95% of the Li, Ni, Co, and Mn from black mass collected from LiBs.
The streamlined SHARP has at least a 60% lower capital cost and a 30% lower reagents and utilities cost as compared to conventional hydrometallurgical processes making it very cost competitive.
SHARP produces zero liquid discharge, and no solid, gas, or liquid toxic waste generation. Plus it uses less energy and water than other methods.
SiC Circuitry Makes EVs Better
Coherent is one of the few companies worldwide with a complete, vertically integrated SiC manufacturing capability. We produce SiC wafers and epitaxy, all the way through power devices and modules. Furthermore, the unmatched quality with which we can produce SiC material makes Coherent virtually the only supplier positioned to successfully transition from the current standard wafer diameter of 150 mm up to 200 mm.
