The LIFE LiBat team has built a prototype plant for recycling primary lithium batteries, which allows lithium and manganese products to be recovered separately. By demonstrating the potential of increasing the recycling efficiency of primary lithium batteries, the project helps reduce the waste fraction destined for landfill or incineration, which is in line with the Waste Framework Directive and the Landfill Directive. It also contributes to the Circular Economy Action Plan since the recovered elements can be transformed into secondary raw materials.
