A Better Pathway to Lithium-ion Battery Processing

WATMAR³ - SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING AND RECYCLING

Water-based Manufacturing Process

GRST’s water-based manufacturing process is a green, simple and safer approach to produce lithium-ion battery cells. The battery cells provide the same ‘energy’ and ‘power’ performance as produced according to the conventional production technology, with the use of standard supply chain materials & machinery. The obvious  advantages are over 10+% CapEx, 30+% energy and solvent materials savings plus environmental benefits of less carbon footprint.

Water-based Recycling Process

Small change in GRST’s manufacturing and battery cells, i.e. replacing to water-soluble binder (glue), that can bring a big difference in the recycling. GRST’s water-based recycling process is a green approach to recycle GRST’s battery wastes versus the conventional hydro- and pyrometallurgical processes. This direct physical separation technology allows mixture of the crushed battery wastes to be simply separated and recovered by types, i.e. cathodes, anodes, copper, aluminum, in water with the use of standard separation and filtration machinery. These valuable materials isolated into their original forms allows us to reuse and regenerate through the end-of-life recycling path.

Battery Cell Design for Recycling

Cost-effective Circular Economy

GRST’s battery technology are built for ease of production and recycling. It provides cost and energy competitive advantages to produce lithium-ion battery. In recycling, it allows us to minimize the waste, time and cost, whereby the cost to recycle does not exceed the value of its recycled materials. This is the manageable way to transform the conventional industry and achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Technology Platform to The Future

GRST’s battery technology are built on the water processing platform, which provides the same advanced techniques (e.g. nanomaterial enhancement and Li-doping) as used in the conventional production. It also supports the next generation cell technologies, such as solid-state battery, lithium metal anode, and other non-lithium-based batteries.
