Lohum: The Future of Sustainable Battery Recycling and Reuse

Lohum: The Future of Sustainable Battery Recycling and Reuse – Lithium-ion batteries are the power source of the modern world. They are used in everything from smartphones and laptops to electric vehicles and renewable energy systems. However, lithium-ion batteries also pose a serious environmental challenge. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, by 2030, there will be 11 million tons of lithium-ion battery waste generated globally. This waste contains valuable and scarce metals such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, and manganese, which are essential for the production of new batteries. Moreover, this waste can also cause soil and water pollution, fire hazards, and greenhouse gas emissions if not handled properly.

How can we solve this problem and create a circular economy for lithium-ion batteries? The answer is Lohum, a company that recycles and repurposes lithium-ion batteries for various applications.

 What is Lohum?

Lohum is a company that was founded in 2018 with a vision to create a ‘technology agnostic integrated battery ecosystem’ that will significantly impact ‘clinical outcomes’ and bring certainty to fertility and cancer care. Lohum recycles and repurposes lithium-ion batteries using advanced technology and processes. Lohum recovers and recirculates the critical battery raw materials such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, and manganese, and reduces the dependency on mining and imports. Lohum also reuses the second-life batteries for energy storage and low-power e-mobility applications, such as home and office backup systems, two-wheelers and three-wheelers, etc. Lohum aims to provide a sustainable, affordable, and efficient solution for battery recycling and reuse, and to create a zero-waste battery materials supply chain.

 How does Lohum work?

Lohum works in four steps:

  • Collection: Lohum collects the used or scrap lithium-ion batteries from various sources, such as OEMs, dealerships, recyclers, consumers, etc. Lohum also offers incentives and rewards for battery collection and ensures proper transportation and storage of the batteries.
  • Sorting: Lohum sorts the batteries based on their chemistry, capacity, condition, and potential for reuse. Lohum uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze the battery data and determine the optimal recycling or repurposing strategy.
  • Recycling: Lohum recycles the batteries that are beyond reuse using its proprietary NEETM technology, which is a low-carbon and high-efficiency extraction process. Lohum recovers up to 95% of the battery raw materials, such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, and graphite, and produces high-purity battery metals and chemicals that are ready for use in the production of new batteries.
  • Repurposing: Lohum repurposes the batteries that have some residual capacity and life left using its proprietary DETX index, which is a real-time valuation tool that assesses the salvage value and second-life applications of the batteries. Lohum reassembles the batteries into new packs and modules that are suitable for energy storage and low-power e-mobility applications.
