The companies are building a solid-state battery recycling platform in Europe to help strengthen the European EV battery industrial chain ecosystem.

As part of the deal, ProLogium Technology will supply the Polish recycler with used solid-state batteries and waste from its production for recycling. Both companies will coordinate R&D efforts to develop new recycling technologies for ProLogium’s batteries.

‘The use of batteries in electromobility is one of the crucial areas of the global economy. What is important is that the resources of rare metals used for their production are limited,’ says Michał Zygmunt, ceo of Elemental Strategic Metals.

‘Therefore, close cooperation between producers and recyclers is necessary. I am convinced that our future cooperation will be beneficial for both companies. I also hope that joint research will result in new solutions in the battery market.

‘ProLogium is dedicated to creating a green battery industry that helps improve energy and resource efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and promote environmental protection,’  adds Vincent Yang, ceo of ProLogiumTechnology. ‘End-of-life battery recycle and raw materials quality are critical for the battery industry. Cooperation with Elemental completes the last piece of our roadmap to secure the entire value chain of EV industry.’
