Li-Cycle is an industry leader in lithium-ion battery resource recovery and the leading lithium-ion battery recycler in North America.
With worldwide EV sales projected to rise from 2 million in 2018 to 56 million by 2040, according to a BloombergNEF (BNEF) study, battery production is set to exceed 1.5 TWh by 2028.
