Redwood has announced a new partnership with Ultium Cells, the joint battery cell manufacturing venture between General Motors and LG Energy Solution, to recycle production scrap from both their Warren, OH and Spring Hill, TN facilities. The materials set to be recycled through the partnership include cathode and anode material, as well as cell scrap.

Ultium Cells’ two facilities are each 2.8 million-square-feet operations that expect to produce more than 80 GWh combined of battery cells annually, with Redwood receiving much of the scrap from its manufacturing process. Ultium is today shipping material from its Ohio and Tennessee Gigafactories, and currently has a third facility under construction in Michigan.

As part of the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Loan Program, Ultium Cells and Redwood were both selected by the Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office to jumpstart critical battery materials and cell production domestically. Together, they aim to develop the USA’s battery supply chain while supporting a swift, sustainable transition to EVs and ensuring a clean energy economy.
