Johnson Controls and Aqua Metals have finalized an agreement covering North America, China and Europe. Under the agreement Johnson Controls will become the first licensee for Aqua Metals' AquaRefining technology, as well as supply Aqua Metals with batteries to recycle as a service, as part of the Johnson Controls closed-loop network. The agreement also involves Johnson Controls' purchase of AquaRefined metals produced from Aqua Metals’ facilities, and the company will acquire just under 5 percent of Aqua Metals outstanding shares for Aqua Metals' cutting-edge electrochemical battery recycling technology.
Aqua Metals has announced that it has produced the first-ever AquaRefined lead at its flagship AquaRefinery in McCarran, Nevada. AquaRefining is a water-based, room-temperature process and is the only clean lead recycling method, according to the company.
Aqua Metals, Inc., which is commercializing a non-polluting electrochemical lead recycling technology called AquaRefining, held an open house earlier this month at its first AquaRefinery, located at the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center (TRIC) in McCarran, Nevada. AquaRefining is the world’s first environmentally friendly process to recycle lead-acid batteries (LABs).
Over 95 percent of the World’s rechargeable batteries use lead-acid chemistry to store and release energy. Lead-acid batteries (LABs) are ubiquitous for automotive, power sports, energy storage and backup power supplies for hospitals and data centers. Demand for LABs and lead to make them with has almost doubled in the last decade.
