Li-Cycle Corp. (Li-Cycle), a leading lithium-ion battery resource recovery company, today announced that it has been named to Sitra’s Inspiring Circular Economy Solutions from Around the Globe ahead of the 2020 World Circular Economy Forum Online (WCEFonline). The WCEFonline, scheduled to run September 29 and 30, is a fully virtual event that will dive into why and how a circular economy can help to reboot and build resilience in the global economy.
“Li-Cycle is thrilled to have been recognized as one of the top 39 most inspiring circular economy solutions,” said Tim Johnston, Executive Chairman and Co-Founder of Li-Cycle. “We’re actively working to rapidly expand the circular supply chain as it relates to lithium-ion batteries; in fact, earlier this month we announced our first commercial lithium-ion battery recycling Hub in Rochester, New York. We believe Li-Cycle’s innovative solution will be key in providing a secondary source of critical materials from spent batteries in an economic and sustainable way.”
