Ontario, Canada-based Li-Cycle Corp., a lithium-ion electric vehicle battery recycler, is building a facility in Gilbert which will effectively double the company’s recycling capacity.
Once completed, the facility will be able to process 10,000 metric tons (22.04 million pounds) of batteries and battery manufacturing scrap per year. The facility will be able to process full electric vehicle battery packs without dismantling. The new plant is expected to create between 40 and 50 new jobs.
