US Heritage Group and tech partner Romeo Power are developing a battery reuse and recycling facility in the southwest of the country, reports ISRI’s Scrap News.
Heritage provides environmental and sustainability services and in 2020 the company launched a new division, Heritage Battery Recycling, to address the growing market demand for ‘safe and sustainable’ lithium-ion battery recycling and reuse. The market for rechargeable batteries will rise due to government incentives and the growing adoption of electric vehicles.
Based in southern California, Romeo Power manufactures battery systems for various electric vehicles, including tractors, trucks, and buses. By working with Romeo Power, HBR ceo Jeff Laborsky says his company ‘will have a unique opportunity to provide a safe, environmentally sound end-of-life strategy for commercial truck manufacturers, commercial fleet managers and conscientious business owners who are investing in clean energy today’.
Heritage is also teaming up with vehicle services provider Heritage-Crystal Clean for the transportation and logistics of HBR’s battery collection operations across North America. Together, Crystal Clean and Heritage claim to give HBR access to more than 100 000 customer locations and 108 facility locations across North America.
