- Circular economy at Nemaska Lithium: when todays LI-ion batteries surge can become tomorrow’s solution

Currently, the lithium battery recycling industry is emerging just as fast as the battery industry itself. The various emerging technologies will be described and evaluated in a circular economy context. See how Nemaska Lithium is actively involved in the circularity of lithium and in the development of technologies allowing the circularity of rechargeable lithium batteries.

- Recovery of High Quality Carbon Fibers from End-of-life Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRPs) recycling is very challenging and yet is in high demand, consequence of the increasing use of this material in the automobile and wind energy industries and the high cost of carbon fibers in the market. The existing solutions for CFRPs recycling today often impact on the quality of obtained recycled fibers, thus preventing their use in high-value applications. Aiming to mitigate some of the inconveniences of these processes, we developed a new technology that uses vaporsolvolysis at low temperature and low pressure to degrade the composite resin and recover high quality fibers. In this work, we present the preliminary study and process optimization that led to the final technology as well as the versatility tests proving that the chosen process is compatible with different thermoset and thermoplastic resins.

- PET Upcycling with Loop technology

With more than 90% of plastic worldwide currently not being recycled, and much of it ending up in our landfills and shared rivers and oceans, there is a plastic crisis. There are several contributing factors to this crisis – and the inability to recycle much of these plastics is one of the more fundamental. Although some plastics are being recycled mechanically, this process has limitations including the ability to deal with contamination, additives and dyes often contained in recovered plastics. To help keep more plastics in the economy and out of the environment – to attain a fully circular economy – Loop Industries’ upcycling technology must be deployed.In this presentation, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the transition to a circular plastic economy by exploring further the present situation in conventional plastic recycling and hearing an overview of Loop™ Industries waste PET and polyester fiber upcycling solution.
