Black mass laboratory recycling

You want to recycle black mass and recover your batteries

What is black mass?

“Black mass” is the material obtained after recycling end-of-life lithium-ion batteries. It is a black powder obtained after crushing and heating the cells used to store electrons. The aim of this process is to recover the precious metals and other valuable components contained in the batteries, such as lithium, nickel, cobalt and manganese. Black mass is the result of the first stage of the recycling process, where the batteries are dismantled and the active electrochemical components are separated from the other materials.

Why recycle black mass?

Black mass is now being heralded as the new virtuous black gold. This black powder is made up of valuable metals such as nickel, cobalt, manganese, copper, lithium and graphite. Once extracted and recovered, these metals can be recycled to produce new batteries.

Recovering batteries is a fundamental challenge because it reduces the need to extract new materials, supporting the circular economy by transforming waste into resources. It is also an essential step towards the sustainable management of battery waste and the promotion of environmentally-friendly industrial practices.

What industrial sectors are involved in black mass recycling?

Many manufacturers in all sectors (automotive, aerospace, nuclear, etc.) use in-house or external laboratories to carry out these analyses.
