LOHUM and Log9 have announced a strategic partnership aimed at addressing the challenge of sustainable battery disposal in the electric vehicle (EV) industry The partnership seeks to address the residual worth of lithium-ion batteries and expedite Log9's Net Zero materials transition endeavors.

The primary focus is to optimise the utilisation of Log9's yearly production of 250 MWh LTO EV batteries after they reach end-of-first-life.

Through Lohum's DETX platform, we play a vital role in this journey by responsibly recycling and repurposing EV batteries, ensuring a zero-carbon footprint. This breakthrough in the EV sector allows us to accelerate urban mining of key materials that go into the making of Lithium-Ion cells. With this partnership we are moving closer to our Net Zero goals and it fits our mission of Pioneering Responsible Energy. We eagerly anticipate this collaboration to significantly enhance our sustainability efforts,” said Pankaj Sharma, co-founder and director, Log9.
