Production of battery elements for electromobility
The extraction of high-purity, battery-compatible lithium, copper, nickel and cobalt is essential in accelerating the transition to electromobility. These four metals form the primary components of lithium-ion batteries.
Here, too, ion exchange resins have already proven their worth for some time. Solutions of the metal ions that arise during refining and recycling are concentrated using selective Lewatit® ion exchangers. Efficient extraction processes lead to the resource-saving production of battery chemicals. The final fine cleaning of the metal concentrates leads to high-purity battery materials, which are required for the production of lithium-ion batteries with high capacity and durability.
