14/09/2020. Ever Resource and its partners launch the UK’s first recycling and processing facility for all battery chemistries.

Fenix Battery Recycling Ltd is the first facility in the UK to offer on-site recycling for all types of batteries. Its first processing line, a state-of-the-art battery shredding and recycling plant in Willenhall, West Midlands, will open its doors in October 2020.

The company will be processing alkaline batteries to produce secondary steel; zinc- and manganese-containing products; paper; and plastic components. In 2021, the technology will be in place to recycle lithium-ion batteries. The same facility will also process all other battery types – including lead-acid and nickel-cadmium batteries.

In partnership with leading Universities in the UK and around the world, Fenix Battery Recycling will support Ever Resource to develop, scale up and commercialise innovative technologies which accelerate our transition to a world without waste. Fenix’s founders – Neil Muttock (Chair), Damian Lambkin (Business Development Director), Miles Freeman (General Manager) and Athan Fox (Technology Director) – are experienced in battery and WEEE collection, recycling, technology and compliance.
