We are expanding our battery recycling capacity withA new state-of-the-art hydrometallurgical plant being built in Harjavalta, Finland
We are revolutionising the lithium-ion battery value chain for electric vehicle and industrial use batteries. Our low-CO2 battery recycling solution makes it possible to recycle over 80% of the battery, and 95% of the valuable metals contained in the battery's black mass can be put back into circulation.
Fortum Battery Recycling
A solution for every stage of the battery 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 have developed a cutting-edge technology to recover up to 95% of the critical metals in the battery's black mass.
Sustainable, low-CO2 recycling solution
Our low-CO2 recycling processes turn lithium, cobalt, manganese and nickel back into raw materials for new batteries.
Our offering for battery recycling and second-life solutions
End of life services for lithium-ion batteries
We provide a safe, sustainable, and cost-effective service for handling, transporting, and recycling of lithium-ion batteries – from EV batteries to industrial-sized batteries.
Recycling solutions for battery manufacturers
We provide recycling solutions for battery production scrap as well as hazardous waste management of challenging waste streams.
Second life solutions for batteries
We extend the battery life-cycle by piloting several second-life solutions for lithium-ion batteries that no longer fit for their original use and purpose.
Why do we care about batteries?
Lithium-ion batteries play a key role in enabling the transition to clean energy and the growth of e-mobility. At Fortum, we are forerunners in battery recycling and have developed a cutting-edge low CO2 hydrometallurgical technology, where up to 95% of valuable metals can be recovered.
