Ultium Cells LLC, the battery manufacturing venture owned by General Motors (GM) and LG Energy Solution, has awarded a major multi-year contract for the recycling of its battery scrap to Li-Cycle, a Mississauga-based battery recycler with plants in Canada and the U.S.

Li-Cycle has agreed to recycle up to 100 per cent of the scrap generated at Ultium’s $2.3-billion Lordstown, Ohio plant, which starts operation in 2022.
