Redwood Materials and Rotary team up to gather discarded batteries.

Redwood Materials partnered with the Rotary Club during Earth Day 2024 to collect used batteries. The company encourages others to join in similar initiatives and to explore ways to contribute to the creation of a clean energy future. As part of this collaboration, Redwood Materials, along with the Bellevue Rotary Club in Washington, collected old batteries from devices such as laptops, tablets, and phones.

The plan is to recycle the raw materials from these devices and batteries, which were gathered from the communities. On Earth Day, both Redwood Materials and the Rotary partners collected thousands of pounds of batteries from their respective communities in just a few hours. They also shared their experience, expressing their commitment to creating a more sustainable future.

The initiative accepted lithium-ion and nickel metal hydride batteries, as these types were contributing to the significant amount of devices discarded annually in the United States. Redwood Materials aims to establish a cathode plant in the United States with a capacity of over 1 million electric vehicles per year at its Nevada Campus.
