‘UK’s first’ large-scale battery recycling plant sparks up in West Midlands

As the world strives towards achieving net zero emissions, the issue of waste from discarded batteries remains a concern.

The company's LiBatt Recycling Centre processes 22,000 tonnes of batteries per year, recovering valuable metals and reducing the need for mining.
