USCAR VRP contracts with OnTo Technology for NiMH and lithium ion battery recycling R&D

Abstract:
The research will involve two kinds of advanced battery chemistries - nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) and lithium ion - and will examine the technical feasibility of recycling these types of automotive batteries, based upon laboratory scale experiments to evaluate the utility of materials produced from various recycling processes. The results will be used to project the investment necessary to adopt new recycling technologies in pilot scale operations.

To maximize recycling yield, OnTo will work with Applied Intellectual Capital (AIC) of California, whose core expertise is in electrochemical technology, nanomaterials and advanced separations.
