Fortum Battery Solutions

We are revolutionizing the lithium-ion battery value chain for electric vehicle and industrial use batteries. Our low-CO2 recycling solution makes over 80% of the battery recyclable, returns the scarce metals used back into circulation, and resolves the sustainability gap by complementing the need to mine nickel, cobalt, and other scarce metals.

Fortum Battery Solutions

A solution for every stage of the life cycle

As an energy and circular economy company, we offer advanced expertise at every stage.

Always the latest technology backed by our own R&D

We are piloting several second-life solutions for batteries. Our latest innovation boosts the recycling rate to over 80%.

Sustainable, low-CO2 solutions

Our low-CO2 recycling process turns cobalt, manganese and nickel back into raw materials for new batteries.

Why do we care about batteries?

With a growing number of devices running on electricity, we are facing a new challenge. The growing need for batteries consumes enormous amounts of rare metals, such as cobalt, manganese and nickel. If we run out of these scarce metals, we can bid farewell to further electrification and the increasing use of renewable energy sources.

As pioneers of electrification based on renewables, this is a challenge we need to resolve. We need an efficient life cycle for lithium-ion batteries. That’s why we have developed solutions for every stage of the life cycle as well as a sustainable way to recycle the majority of the materials used in batteries and use them to create new ones.  We will renew the value chain for lithium-ion batteries to enable a cleaner, electrified future. 

co2 free society relies on battery technology

Fortum Battery Solutions prolong the life of lithium-ion batteries

Increasing electric transportation and renewable energy production relies heavily on batteries. Our battery solutions maximise the lifetime of a battery. After the original use, the battery can still serve in a second-life application before its materials are recycled back to new batteries.
