The future of transportation is going electric, and with all electric vehicles (EV) come batteries.
Some of the contents of these batteries are mined through child labour in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or acquired through chemical leaching in Chile, Argentina and Bolivia, causing damage to the local ecosystems.
Before we all go buy an EV we need to create a pipeline for recycling these finite minerals:
This project is a Danish facility for recycling end-of-life Li-ion batteries through organic acid from fermented fungi, while at the same time being a local hub for watersport- and conference facilities.
The project is a transformation of three old ammonia storage silos in Lillebælt. The silos are retrofitted to support the new program and provide public access to the site that becomes a social catalyst for the area.
