NuEnergy/Wistron join up on new Lithium-ion battery recycling plant

McKinney Factory New Home for Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Plant

Princeton NuEnergy Inc. (PNE) is opening its Lithium-Ion Battery (LIB) Direct Recycling 500-ton pilot production line with Wistron GreenTech in McKinney, Texas.

The joint pilot line hosts a full range of capabilities including state-of-the-art plasma equipment. As the first end-to-end, production-scale direct recycling line in the U.S., Princeton NuEnergy (PNE)’s proprietary technology directly processes LIB’s ranging from consumer electronics to full EV battery packs. This highly modular facility has capacity to process up to 500 tons per year of LIB manufacturing scrap and end-of-life batteries. Wistron’s Jeff Lin adds this, “Our joint pilot production line will increase Consumer Electronics, Storage and EV battery recycling capabilities, strengthen Texas’s battery and electric vehicle supply chains and achieve our ESG goals.”

Texas presents a significant opportunity for recycling because of the region’s massive growth in all aspects of the emerging LIB supply chain. Texas leads in the design and manufacturing of advanced semiconductors, consumer electronics and world-class EVs.  Companies like Tesla, Dell and Cynergy…all lithium-battery users, are all nearby.
