Editor's note: Redwood will soon produce cathode from the recycling program. An earlier version of this story misstated that status of that production. Redwood also clarified that other packs were recycled outside of the California pilot program.
Redwood Materials recycled more than 1,000 end-of-life battery packs last year to produce high-quality battery materials through a pilot program with California.
The battery recycling company worked with Toyota Motor Corp., Ford Motor Co., Volvo Cars, Volkswagen Group of America and dismantlers to collect and recycle lithium ion and nickel metal hydride batteries in California as part of a program launched in February 2022, the company said in a statement Thursday.
Redwood recycled the batteries at its facilities in Nevada and has started to produce anode from the recycled batteries that can be used by battery cell manufacturers. Redwood will soon produce cathode from the packs, spokeswoman Alexis Georgeson told Automotive News.
