Canada’s Li-Cycle plans EV battery recycling facility in Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Canada-based Li-Cycle Holdings Corp., the leading lithium-ion battery recycler in North America, plans to build a recycling facility near the Mercedes-Benz assembly plant in Tuscaloosa County, providing new capabilities within Alabama’s auto industry.

The Tuscaloosa location will become Li-Cycle’s fourth lithium-ion battery recycling facility, or Spoke, in North America. The Alabama Spoke is projected to begin operations by mid-2022 and is expected to create over 30 jobs initially.

“With the popularity of electric vehicles accelerating, it’s critical that old batteries are recycled — and Li-Cycle’s technologies make that possible,” Governor Kay Ivey said.

“Li-Cycle’s selection of Tuscaloosa for its network of recycling facilities means not only jobs in Alabama, but also a positive for the environment.”
