Gabriele Lombardo

Phd Student, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Industrial Materials Recycling

Gabriele´s project is funded by Battery fund and it is about the development of a recycling process for spent lithium ion batteries. The aim is the recovery of valuable metals ( such as Ni, Co, Mn, Li etc.) with a high purity, using thermal pretreatment and hydrometallurgical techniques. There are a lot of different chemistries for lithium ion batteries. So it is necessary develop a flexible recycling method to make it possible to recover different metals in an economical and sustainable way.
