Event Description: By 2040, an estimated 559 million electric vehicles will be on the road worldwide. Furthermore, the capacity of global lithium-ion battery energy storage installations is projected to skyrocket over 50 times during that same time. While lithium-ion batteries continue to play an increasingly critical role in the global transition toward electrification, the world lacks a viable option for dealing with the rapidly growing volumes of spent lithium-ion batteries. Li-Cycle™ provides a solution for this gap through an innovative and sustainable resource recovery process.
Li-Cycle Technology™ is a closed loop, economically viable, safe, sustainable and scalable processing technology that provides a solution to the global lithium-ion battery recycling problem. The technology recovers 80-100% of all materials found in lithium-ion batteries.
Tim Johnston is a mechanical engineer (chartered professional engineer, CPEng) and CFA charter holder. Tim is the Chairman and Co-Founder of Li-Cycle, Inc. Prior to Li-Cycle, Tim spent over 10 years as Hatch Associates’ specialist in project management and transactional analysis for their global lithium business. During his time with Hatch, he managed the development of projects across the lithium-ion battery value chain. Tim also evaluated hundreds of lithium projects and managed the development of lithium projects around the world for SQM, Rockwood Lithium (Albemarle), Bacanora Minerals, AMG-NV, Rio Tinto, Galaxy Resources and other key developers. His consulting experience ranges broadly over the metals, industrial minerals, and large infrastructure assets. Tim has co-authored 7 technical publications with a focus on project execution in the lithium sector.
