Breakthrough on most environmentally friendly recycling lithium-ion batteries yet.

 

Now, a breakthrough from scientists at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, may have led to the most environmentally friendly method of recycling these batteries yet. The new method uses fruit peels to extract precious metals from spent batteries, which can then be reused in new batteries.

Other methods of recycling lithium-ion batteries involve extreme heat and chemicals that produce secondary pollutants, leading to health and safety risks.

By using fruit peels, the scientists say that they can help provide a solution for both food waste and electronics waste at the same time.
