Technology Minerals #TM1 – Recyclus ‘Halo’ battery boxes receive UN-standard safety certification

Technology Minerals Plc (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company to focus on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, announces that Recyclus Group, a 49% Technology Minerals-owned company, has been granted a UN-standard safety certification for its industry-leading battery boxes. The battery boxes, under the brand name Halo, provide a secure solution to the challenges of safely storing and transporting Li-ion batteries, as well as a mechanism for Recyclus’ strategy for UK-wide collections of Li-ion batteries and other dangerous goods.

Highlights:

  • Recyclus ‘Halo’ battery boxes receive UN-standard safety certification
  • Boxes adhere to UN standard for the transportation of lithium-ion (“Li-ion”) batteries, opening a new revenue stream for Recyclus in domestic and international markets
  • British-engineered design is modular and repairable to deliver value and longevity
  • Unique ‘battery pillow’ technology provides a safer, more environmentally friendly solution by preventing battery fires from emitting toxic gases

The battery boxes meet rigorous safety standards and have received the ADR certification P911(1), a requirement for transporting hazardous substances by road within Europe. The certification confirms that the boxes adhere to UN standards (UN nos. 3090, 3091, 3480 and 3481) for the transport of damaged or defective cells and batteries liable to rapidly disassemble, dangerously react, produce a flame, a dangerous evolution of heat, or a dangerous emission of toxic, corrosive, or flammable gases or vapours under normal conditions of transport. 

Receiving the certification opens new logistical market opportunities for Recyclus in the batteries sector, as the Company has demonstrated it can safely store and move batteries to UN standards. The battery boxes will be sold both in the UK market and internationally, and will also be available for short-term leasing options. It also highlights the importance of security and safety in the battery supply chain, especially with potentially hazardous Li-ion batteries.

Lithium batteries can pose a serious fire risk if mishandled. If punctured, even small ones could explode. Recent research fromEunomia Research and Consulting found that Li-ion batteries are currently responsible for around 48% of all waste fires in the UK each year, causing around £158 million in damages annually. 

Should a fire occur during storage or transportation, the Halo boxes contain the event and, as a secondary measure, the boxes’ proprietary fire-smothering ‘battery pillows’ extinguish any fires and prevent the build-up of poisonous gases. In the event of a fire, the pillows are designed to fail at the source, releasing ‘pyrobubbles,’ which melt and smother the flame. This solution is safer and more environmentally friendly because it stops battery fires from releasing toxic gases.

The boxes are also designed with value and longevity in mind. The modular approach means any damaged components can be easily swapped out for ease of repair and lower costs.

Robin Brundle, Chairman of Technology Minerals, said: “It is imperative that lithium-ion batteries are handled, stored, and transported with the highest standards of safety, and we are proud to achieve this UN-standard certification demonstrating the quality and safety of our Halo box technological solution.

“As the world embraces the era of electrification, there is set to be a huge increase in demand for the logistical capability to safely store, move, and recycle batteries, and this certification opens up another revenue stream to Recyclus, both domestically and abroad, at an opportune time. Discussions with potential customers have demonstrated the level of demand for the Halo boxes and we expect to see revenues during August.”

Technology Minerals #TM1 – Recyclus awarded Lithium-ion EA Permit at Wolverhampton plant

Technology Minerals Plc (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, is pleased to announce that the Environment Agency (“EA”) has awarded its 49% owned battery recycling business, Recyclus Group Ltd (“Recyclus”), an environmental permit for its recycling plant in Wolverhampton, West Midlands. 

The EA permit at its Wolverhampton plant will provide the critical legal foundation from which Recyclus can receive the variation of licence required to enable the Wolverhampton site to be fully operational. This variation of licence is required due to the novelty of recycling lithium-ion batteries within the UK.   

Further, the EA has prioritised the determination of Recyclus’ application to transfer its permits across its lithium-ion Wolverhampton plant and lead-acid Tipton plant. This priority status has been given to Recyclus as the EA is satisfied that the development of the company will help maintain national resilience, national infrastructure and/or is critical for environmental protection. 

Once the site is fully operational, the Wolverhampton plant will be the first in the UK with the capacity to recycle lithium-ion batteries on an industrial scale and will be a key foundation of Recyclus’ ambition to increase its lithium-ion battery recycling capacity from an estimated 8,300 tonnes in the first full year of operations, to circa 41,500 tonnes by 2027. 

This is the second EA permit Recyclus has been awarded in two weeks following the environmental permit obtained for its Tipton recycling facility earlier this month. 

Robin Brundle, Chairman of Technology Minerals, said: “Receiving the EA permit for our Wolverhampton plant is a critical step for the recycling facility to become fully operational which, for the first time, will bring industrial scale recycling capability for lithium-ion batteries in the UK. To be awarded priority status and be categorised as an organisation critical for environmental protection is fantastic. This high-level of recognition from the EA is reflective of the importance of Recyclus’ ambition to recycle batteries and establish a circular economy for battery metals in the UK. With the increasing demand for critical battery metals, we are pleased to be seen as integral to ensuring a domestic supply through recycling.”

Technology Minerals #TM1 – Interview with The Sunday roast

Phil and Kevin at The Sunday Roast PR had a nice chat with Robin Brundle Chairman at Technology Minerals and talked all things Battery recycling and Junior mining

Technology Minerals – Recycling Blueprint for the EV and Battery Industry a Racing Certainty?

By Arjun Thakkar and Alan Green

Along with Christmas parties, the most oft discussed topic in 2021 was almost certainly the COP26 conference, net zero carbon neutrality, sustainability, climate change and other aspirational matters pointing to an internal combustion engine free world. There’s plenty of awareness of the issues surrounding climate change and the environment, but the simple facts are that the leading economies around the world (never mind the developing nations) are woefully underprepared to tackle these issues and create the circular economy required to support sustainability.

Technology Minerals #TM1 and Recyclus Group open UK laboratory

Technology Minerals Plc (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, is pleased to announce it has opened its first laboratory suite at its new battery processing facility in Wolverhampton, UK.  

The new laboratory enables Recyclus Group, a 49% Technology Minerals owned company, to carry out its own in-house testing for both lead acid and lithium-ion (“Li-ion”) battery recycling processes.  

The testing facility comprises specialised equipment including an X-ray fluorescence machine (“XRF”) used for measuring the elemental composition of the various battery products. This technology is especially important for examining the lead content of the lead oxide paste and the levels of sulphur which, in turn, ensures the quality of the end product.

The laboratory also houses a Gas Chromatograph with an auto sampler which – when used in conjunction with wet chemical analysis – is crucial in establishing lithium levels and monitoring the in-process products to avoid any potential contamination. The facility has fire-safe, lockable cabinets for housing all the essential analytical chemicals used in the close monitoring of both the lead and lithium recycling processes. 

Robin Brundle, Chairman of Technology Minerals, said: “The opening of a new specialised laboratory at our battery processing facility in Wolverhampton is in line with our strategy and development programme for commissioning the first of our lithium-ion plants. It is another step towards our goal to significantly increase our recycling capacity in 2022 for lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries and ultimately help enhance the UK’s capabilities for battery recycling.”
