The goal of Ascend Elements' battery resources technology is to improve the way end-of-life lithium-ion battery processing is done. The company uses direct recycling as well as hydro process recycling in its cutting-edge technologies. Through this process, old cathode material is broken down to the atomic level and fresh cathode material is created. This enables efficient recycling and inexpensive battery materials.
