MEtal CApture for WAste REcycling
The European battery manufacturing industry faces major challenges in terms of raw material requirements and the recycling of production scraps, the process of which is consuming these very same raw materials.
Launched in December 2020, MECAWARE is developing a specific industrial process line to produce critical and rare-earth metals by recycling technological waste, such as batteries (Li-ion, NiMH). The process also recycles production scraps to enhance production efficiency and obtain metal recovery. The company is currently scaling up operations with the goal of deploying the first industrial line in 2024.
