Circular B2B market platform for used lithium-ion batteries


PROBLEM

Lithium-ion battery production will soon emit twice as much greenhouse gas emissions as Sweden. Meanwhile, their supply chains gravely disrespect human rights and creates significant geopolitical imbalance. The battery supply chains are not circular because the ecosystem is fragmented and the recycling and remanufacturing industries lack the clear cut waste-streams they need to scale. Hence, batteries get stuck in hazardous storage at dismantlers, workshops and in warehouses.

SOLUTION

A circular market platform for used lithium-ion batteries. Reuse can extend lifetime by many years, reducing the need for new batteries. Recycling can reduce dependency on today’s supply chains, while cutting energy consumption by 50% and emissions by up to 80%. However, batteries are not circular due to the fractioned ecosystem and inability to value batteries. Cling removes this friction, enabling reuse and recycling at scale.
