Audi and Umicore use recycled cobalt and nickel (electrive)

  • Audi and Umicore have completed the test phase of their research cooperation which showed that more than 90% of the cobalt and nickel from e-tron batteries can be recycled, and starting January will use these recycled materials in new battery cells.

  • However, these cells will not be used directly in new cars, as Audi first wants to “master the process” before “series production is conceivable”.

Analysis and Comments

  • While this is a very encouraging result, expectation remains that it will be a number of years before this becomes mainstream technology.

  • Analysts also note that the process referred to only focuses on battery cells used in the Audi ranges – Umicore is also involved in a similar project with Northvolt & BMW..

  • Reading between the lines, analysts expect more research work on the recycling process through 2020 and potentially 2021, before they move to pilot production.

I shall feel vindicated and very virtuous next time I lust after a sexy new Audi! LOL. Knowing full well that I shall be driving a hard-core pick up 4x4 truck for the remainder of my days, the off-grid, mountain terrain really demanding that.
