The extraction technology that Metso Outotec will supply to the US plant

Metso Outotec has signed an agreement with Li-Cycle North America Hub to supply manganese, cobalt and nickel solvent extraction technology for a battery recycling plant to be built in Rochester, New York, United States.

The company explained that it would deliver three modular VSF X solvent extraction plants and related Dual Media Filters and basic engineering to the plant.

Jari Algars, president of the metals business area at Metso Outotec, said the "energy-efficient" technology is part of the company's Planet Positive product range and will help customers reduce emissions during operations.

"The Li-Cycle project will be an important new reference for Metso Outotec in the battery recycling business," Algars said.

The value of the agreement was not disclosed.
