Metso Outotec to supply sustainable solvent extraction technology to Li-Cycle
Metso Outotec has signed an agreement with Li-Cycle North America for the supply of manganese, cobalt, and nickel solvent extraction technology for a battery recycling plant to be built in Rochester, New York.
The Metso Outotec delivery includes three modular VSFX solvent extraction plants and related Dual Media Filters, and basic engineering.
"We are looking forward to working with Li-Cycle on this battery recycling project. The energy-efficient, modular VSFX solvent extraction plant, which is part of our Planet Positive product range, reduces emissions and is safe to operate. The Li-Cycle project will be an important new reference for Metso Outotec in the battery recycling business," says Jari Ålgars, President of the Metals business area at Metso Outotec.
