Economic electrification depends on the reliable acquisition of a range of valuable but environmentally harmful metals, Including lithium, cobalt, nickel and manganese. We talked with co-founder and CEO Megan O’Conor (Megan O’Conor) Nth cycle, A start-up company based in Beverly, Massachusetts, is ready to disrupt the metal recycling industry with an electric extraction system that can be run in very small facilities around the world. In a very compact facility, the Nth Cycle process can process up to 5 tons of material per day-only 1,000 square feet, about half the size of a typical retail store.This means that in theory, the material can be recovered near the source and reused locally, and 3D printing As it matures, the idea of locally printing cars or EV batteries is a very realistic possibility.
The N-cycle technology may also help extract more metals from ore and reprocessing waste discarded by mining and smelting companies. Nth Cycle recently won second place in TechCrunch’s Startup Battlefield competition, which is a major achievement and raised 4.5 million US dollars.You can nthcycle.com.
