Technology Minerals Plc (LSE: TM1), the first listed UK company focused on creating a sustainable circular economy for battery metals, are supporting the agenda for COP26 very strongly and have announced WMG as a knowledge transfer partner.
WMG is an academic department at the University of Warwick and is the leading international role model for successful collaboration between academia and the public an
d private sectors, driving innovation in science, technology and engineering, to develop the brightest ideas and talent.
Technology Minerals, has collaborated with WMG for a four-year Engineer Doctor Program. Technology Minerals’ 49% owned industry leading battery recycling company – Recyclus Group will share their immense knowledge of lithium-ion and recycling batteries with WMG which will help them to teach bright young people out of university. As part of the knowledge transfer, Technology Minerals will also receive access to the laboratories in which WMG have invested £80mn over the last decade.
The collaboration is crucial as students learnings are through, researching optimising the processes at Recyclus and analysing the materials coming out of the battery so it’s good enough
to be recycled, rather than academic research.
This collaboration will bring benefits to both Technology Minerals and WMG. As by working with companies like Recyclus not only do WMG’s researchers help to improve the UK battery industry and the capabilities of Technology Minerals and Recyclus Group but the WMG research team get to experience and work on real world problems.
