The ReLiB Project

ReLiB

ReLiB is working to help establish a unique UK collaborative platform capability for battery circular economy in the UK. Cell recycling and reuse is a fast moving topic and impact needs to be coupled with the ability to demonstrate technology at an appropriate scale.

The overall aim of the ReLiB project is to understand the conditions required to ensure the sustainable management of lithium-ion batteries when they reach the end of their useful life in electric vehicles. This will enhance the overall efficiency of the supply chain and ensure that the UK has the facilities required for safe, economic and environmentally sound management of the materials contained in lithium-ion batteries. Since many of the components in

batteries are made from valuable elements with special properties, which should not be disposed of as waste, it makes sense to explore how these could be recovered from end-of-life batteries to develop a system for re-circulating this material for new battery production. This would reduce the demand for imported primary materials and would also enhance the security of supply and material efficiency.

    Powering Britain’s Battery Revolution

    The Faraday Institution

    Founded in October 2017, the Faraday Institution is the UK’s independent institute for electrochemical energy storage science and technology, supporting research, training, and analysis.

    Bringing together expertise from universities and industry, and as part of the Faraday Battery Challenge, the Faraday Institution endeavours to make the UK the go-to place for the research, development, manufacture and production of new electrical storage technologies for both the automotive and the wider relevant sectors.

    The Faraday Institution funds application-inspired basic research in electrochemical energy storage. The most promising research coming out of the Institution will be developed for real-world use through the pipeline of innovation and application established through the Faraday Battery Challenge. This model will discover new materials, leading to game-changing tech breakthroughs.
