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.

Batteries play a key role in electrification

Lithium-ion batteries play a significant role in electrification by enabling the transition to clean energy and the growth of e-mobility. With a growing number of devices running on electricity, we are facing a new challenge. The growing need for batteries consumes enormous amounts of critical metals, such as cobalt, lithium, manganese and nickel. If we run out of these valuable materials, we can bid farewell to further electrification.

As pioneers of electrification based on renewables, this is a challenge we need to resolve. That’s why we at Fortum have developed solutions to extend the battery life-cycle, as well as, developed a safe and sustainable way to recycle the majority of the materials used in batteries. Once recovered, the valuable materials can then be returned back to the production of new batteries.
