Rutgers EcoComplex “Clean Energy Innovation Center” proudly announces and congratulates Princeton NuEnergy (PNE) on its U.S. Department of Energy EERE grant award achievement.
Princeton NuEnergy (PNE) will team up with grant partners from Argonne National Lab, National Renewable Energy Lab, Oak Ridge National Lab, and UC Irvine to officially launch its $12 million U.S. Department of Energy grant that will advance its proprietary, plasma-assisted, end-to-end direct recycling and upcycling technology for lithium-ion batteries by developing new environmentally sustainable solutions to significantly lower costs in LIB materials fabrication, increase material performance, reduce chemical waste, and reduce geopolitical risk from the materials supply chain.
NJ Congressman Andy Kim and State Senator Andrew Zwicker will officially welcome leading scientists and distinguished guests to the event to be held on Wednesday, April 5 at Rutgers EcoComplex in Bordentown, PNE’s R&D headquarters.
“The EcoComplex is proud of the role we’ve played in PNE’s R&D innovation journey. We are happy to provide our services and lend support to PNE’s breakthrough in lithium-ion battery direct recycling that helped earn this significant DOE funding,” said Serpil Guran, Director of the Rutgers EcoComplex, a business incubator for clean energy and environmental innovation in New Jersey and the US.
PNE is a New Jersey-based innovative clean-tech company focused on recycling, repurposing, and commercializing lithium-ion battery (LIB) materials from EVs, consumer electronics, manufacturing scrap, and energy storage batteries. This grant will enable PNE and its grant partners to help reduce the nation’s dependence on foreign materials and enhance domestic advanced manufacturing capabilities.
