orthvolt aims to use 50% recycled materials in all its new battery cells by 2030. Fresh investment totalling €5.8 million (£4.8m) has been announced for Swedish company Northvolt, which is developing a pilot battery recycling facility in the country. The money from Inno Energy, Europe’s sustainable energy innovation engine, with support from the EU and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), will be invested in Northvolt’s‘Revolt’ programme, which will implement the latest discoveries in efficient materials recovery methods for batteries. It will be followed by a full-scale version at Northvolt’s site in Skellefteå, which aims to use 50% recycled materials in all its new battery cells by 2030. The pilot plant is expected to come online later in 2020 and will initially target 100 tons of recycling capacity per year.
