Greenlance, the up-and-coming E-bike battery company, has teamed up with Lithium Battery Recycling Solutions (LBRS) to close their supply chain, allowing them to provide a sustainable solution to the ongoing issue of lithium battery recycling.
Founded in September 2021, Greenlance specialises in the production of lithium bicycle batteries and premium e-bike batteries. The partnership between Greenlance and LBRS will allow them to be one of the first E-Bike battery companies that materially recycles its own batteries starting in the UK.
Alan Colledge, Technical Director at LBRS, an arm of Cawleys recycling and waste management, said:
“Sustainability and safety are at the centre of our vision and being able to work with a like-minded company like Greenlance allows us to show how our expertise can be used in sustainable methods of transport.
“Greenlance care greatly about the process of end-of-life lithium batteries, and we’re thrilled to be able to work together to offer them a sustainable solution for handling these batteries as they reach their end-of-life.”
Lithium batteries can be very dangerous and can pose a significant health and safety risk if not handled correctly. As such, organisations need to work with experienced specialists – that’s where LBRS steps in. As lithium battery recycling experts, they can help with battery management – disposal, storage, transportation, dismantling and recycling.”
Hristiyan Mihaylov, CEO of Greenlance added:
“We’re excited to be working in partnership with LBRS. This organisation plays an important role in achieving our environmental ambitions by allowing us to turn end-of-life batteries into a resource rather than viewing them as waste.
“Working collaboratively, we believe we can help emphasise the importance of the recycling of lithium-ion batteries and the many additional purposes end-of-life batteries can offer to businesses.”
