 ReVolt Battery Technology CorporationJan Naidu Small Business Other Energy Technologies ReVolt is located in the University of Houston and specializes in critical metal recovery from Lithium Ion battery (LiB) production waste and end-of-life batteries to provide a Circular economy model for sustainable LiB manufacturing in the United States.

The rapid growth of lithium ion batteries (LIBs) for portable electronic devices and electric vehicles has resulted in an increased number of spent LIBs. Spent LIBs contain not only dangerous heavy metals but also toxic chemicals that pose a serious threat to ecosystems and human health.

Spent LIBs usually contain 5%–20% cobalt (Co), 5%–10% nickel (Ni), 5%–7% lithium (Li), 5%–10% other metals (copper (Cu), aluminum (Al), iron (Fe), etc.), 15% organic compounds, and 7% plastic, although their compositions differ depending on the manufacturers. Valuable metals such as lithium, nickel, cobalt, and manganese (Mn) from spent LIBs bring significant economic benefits if they can be recycled.
Driven by economic interests, the recovery of spent LIBs mainly focuses on recycling highly valuable metals such as Co, Li, and Ni from cathode materials; the recovery of anode materials and electrolyte is rarely reported.

It is difficult to remove cathode material from aluminum foil during the recycling of spent LIBs because of the strong adhesive force of the PVDF binder. ReVolt uses Ultrasonic treatment as an effective method for stripping cathode material from aluminum foil because of its cavitation effect.

The metal-extraction process is a significant part of ReVolt's proprietary recovery process. The metal-extraction process focuses on changing the solid metals in spent LIBs into their alloy form or solution state, which facilitates the subsequent separation and recovery of metal components. The main approaches adopted during the extraction process include pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy, biometallurgy, and direct-recycling to build a local supply-chain of battery materials in the United States.
