This is equivalent to the volume needed to equip around 500,000 electric cars with lithium-ion batteries.

The company’s goal is to create the world’s first closed loop for lithium, thus closing the raw material gap on the road to clean mobility. Rock Tech has a 100% interest in the Georgia Lake Project and, as early as 2030, around 50% of the raw materials used are expected to come from the recycling of batteries.
