Britishvolt and Glencore intend to recycle batteries at Britannia Refined Metals, which is owned by Glencore, at a site in Northfleet, Kent, that was previously home to the UK’s largest coal-fired power station. The project, which is scheduled to open in 2023, will be capable of recycling a minimum of 10,000 tonnes of lithium-ion batteries each year, which is equivalent to 50,000 electric car batteries. The plant will be able to handle batteries from automobiles and portable electronic gadgets, as well as scrap from Britishvolt’s proposed “gigafactory” in Blyth, Northumberland, which will be brought to Kent by barge to reduce carbon emissions.
