      Department of Energy Commits $20.5M to Spark Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling

      The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced plans for a $20.5 million investment in lithium-ion battery recycling, with the goal of boosting capture rates to 90%, from a current rate of less than 5%. These investments include $15 million to create a new Lithium Battery R&D Recycling Center in partnership with Argonne National Laboratory, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The remaining $5.5 million will be used as prize money in a contest seeking "solutions to collecting, storing, and transporting discarded lithium-ion batteries for eventual recycling." According to DOE, the contest will be "designed to accelerate the development of solutions from concept to prototype to demonstration."
