As demand for energy storage technologies skyrockets, researchers have been investigating how to recycle precious materials crucial for manufacturing the lithium-ion batteries used in battery storage. Now, a breakthrough in research has developed recycled batteries which can actually perform better than new ones, according to Scientific American

“Recycling of lithium-ion batteries—getting that material back into the supply chain—is critical,” says Dave Howell, director of the DOE’s Vehicle Technologies Office.
