What we do
Solveteq’s technology is affordable and easily deployed, meaning it can be widely adopted with minimal disruption even in strictly regulated markets.
Solveteq’s pioneering use of Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs) for lead recycling is highly scalable as it relies on affordable and readily available chemicals like ethylene glycol.
Solveteq’s patent-protected technology uses safe and readily-available materials to recycle batteries at low temperatures.
Solveteq’s solvent technology offers battery recyclers a more reliable and sustainable parallel pathway which is not impacted by higher energy costs. This innovative approach can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90% and minimise all other environmental pollutants, reducing environmental compliance costs.
Solveteq’s technology will help to make one of the world’s most critical industries more sustainable and efficient.
Recycling lead-acid batteries is essential but inefficient and energy-intensive. Lead-acid batteries are found in all cars, including EVs. Recycling currently requires smelting at 1,000°C which produces significant carbon dioxide emissions. Informal lead recycling in some developing regions can be extremely polluting, with vulnerable communities often affected by lead poisoning and other serious health problems.
