The newly expanded shredding plant enables commercial operations to commence in the first quarter of 2022, subject to board approvals. This will see up to 10 tonnes per day of battery-grade metal sulphate chemicals safely recycled into new battery production.
Nonetheless, Primobius is continuing its operational readiness activities ahead of the receipt of its Federal environmental (emissions) licence.

Firstly, I’d like to congratulate SMS for delivering this showcase of German engineering, it heralds the entry of Primobius into the European battery supply chain.
