We at Circu Li-Ion fight the climate crisis by maximizing the lifecycle of each li-ion cell. Used batteries are a true resource – more than 80% of battery cells can be recovered when a battery is at the end of its first life, while at the same time significantly reducing CO2 pollution. This means less waste, saving CO2 and using our resources to their full potential. We have designed a machine to extract and diagnose each li-ion cell in an automated manner from their battery packs and enable their reusage. Our process sets new technological and ecological standards, closing the loop and fully enabling the circular economy in the battery industry.
