EcoMove Recover Partners with Fenix to deliver UK-first sustainable battery recycling
Increasing Lithium-ion Battery recycling in the UK
Eco Recover has joined forces with Fenix Battery Recycling to set up a recycling scheme for PEV (Personal Electric Vehicle) batteries across the UK & Ireland.
By 2025, it’s estimated that there will be 4 million eScooters, 12000 Electric Mopeds and 350K eBikes on the market, resulting in catastrophic numbers of lithium-ion batteries going to landfill.
The new scheme aims to increase the number of batteries recycled in the UK, and make lithium-ion battery recycling cleaner and more sustainable
UK’s first 100% Eco-Friendly Battery Recycling Solution
The recycling scheme, which is the first of its kind in the UK, means people across the country can drop off end-of-life lithium-ion batteries from electric bikes, scooters and mopeds at one of Eco Recover’s collection points.
The batteries will then be collected and recycled at Fenix Battery Recycling depot in the Midlands. All of the collections carried out by Eco Recover will be done using 100% electric vehicles, further minimising their contribution to carbon emissions.
Leading the way for Sustainable Business
Through partnering with Eco Recover, Businesses in the green transport sector can provide their customers with a sustainable recycling solution, and play a more active role in the management of the Lithium-Ion batteries they produce.
The partnership between Fenix and Eco Recover will not only provide battery users with a more eco-friendly recycling solution, but it will also encourage other businesses in the industry to follow their example in pushing sustainability.
As well as lithium-ion battery recycling, Fenix will offer recycling for lithium primary batteries found in portable electronic devices, alkaline batteries and wet and dry NiCad batteries at its mixed-chemistry battery recycling plants.
