Saint Jean Carbon (TSXV:SJL) has announced that it, together with its battery manufacturing partner, will be building a high powered full scale lithium-ion battery with recycled/upcycling material from an electric car power back.
As quoted in the press release:

This will be a world first and hopefully will provide results that prove the life cycle of the raw material can be reused over and over again. Ideally, greatly reducing the demand for continued mining and helping the environment significantly.
The project will have a three stage approach: 1) Using proprietary and patented systems for dismantling and separating the chemistry and hard materials. 2) Design and re-engineering the surfacing of the raw materials. 3) Construct two identical cells, one with new material and one with upcycled materials. Both cells will be tested to over 10,000 cycles; this will create the most realistic sampling test results.
In the future having the ability to take recycled materials, reengineer them and repurpose to build a high performance lithium-ion battery (HPL) would be a first and would greatly change the way we look at the raw material chain in energy storage applications and how the raw material will affect the cost of electric vehicles. The outcome, if successful will be step one in a multi design build project that would hopefully see a test vehicle built using the batteries.
