Solveteq offers a more sustainable and efficient way to recycle lead-acid batteries

Reduced energy and compliance costs


Less co2

Affordable and accessible technology
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.

Our technology

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.

Our mission

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.

Our services

Recycling Technology Services
We license our patent-protected technology to customers, offering a more efficient and sustainable way to help battery recyclers reach net zero.
R&D Support Services
Our experienced team of scientists and engineers also provides ongoing R&D support to leading recycling companies and other partners.

Our people

Solveteq’s team of scientists, engineers and experienced executives are united by our mission to solve the environmental, economic and health challenges posed by lead-acid battery recycling.
