WBUR Boston’s Bruce Gellerman visited Ascend Elements in Westborough, Mass. recently for an in-depth segment on lithium-ion battery recycling.
The segment begins by identifying the important elements needed in electric vehicles, as well as the supply chain challenges that go along with them.
Ascend Elements co-founders Yan Wang and Eric Gratz were featured in the story — describing how they began developing their innovative lithium battery recycling process 10 years ago. With this technology, Ascend Elements transforms used lithium-ion batteries into ones that are better than new, lasting longer, charging faster, and emitting less pollution.
