The two-step system consisting of shredding and recovery facilitates the efficient organization of decentralized and central system parts into a hub-and-spoke system.
From this Primobius will generate both low and high value saleable products for re-use in new applications. The high-value, high purity chemical products for use by cathode makers. By separating the key materials in batteries, Primobius recovers cobalt, lithium, nickel, and other materials that would otherwise end up being recycled inefficiently or potentially finding their way to landfill. These products complement supplies from primary mine production sources, support domestic raw material supply chain resilience and have a non-conflict provenance.
