Li-Cycle opens lithium-ion battery recycling ‘Spoke’ in Alabama

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — Li-Cycle, a leading North American recycler of lithium-ion batteries, has launched commercial operations at an advanced recycling facility in Tuscaloosa that will support the company’s growing electric-vehicle battery supply customer base across the Southeast.

Li-Cycle’s Alabama Spoke, as the facility is called, utilizes the company’s patented, environmentally friendly technology to recycle and directly process full EV battery packs without any dismantling through a submerged shredding process that produces no wastewater.

“This facility enhances our ability to support the recycling needs of our diverse and growing customer base in North America to ensure lithium-ion battery material is recycled in an environmentally friendly and safe manner,” said Ajay Kochhar, co-founder and CEO of Li-Cycle.

“Li-Cycle is creating an essential domestic supply of recycled material to support EV production and assist automakers in meeting their domestic production content requirements,” Kochhar added.
