Zero Carbon Technologies Ltd.


Zero Carbon is a circular economy innovator with specific focus on recycling technologies, particularly for end-of-life management of batteries. The company was founded on May 26, 2021, and has secured land, buildings, and plant equipment to operate a 50,000 sq ft battery recycling plant in La Mancha, Spain. Zero Carbon expects to commission the plant by the end of the 2nd quarter of 2024, with further expansion in 2025.


The use of batteries in electric vehicles is vital for a sustainable transportation system and achieving long-term climate goals. With the increasing demand for electric vehicles, there is also a growing need for EV batteries. As these batteries reach the end of their life, the recycling sector presents significant growth opportunities. Zero Carbon has developed patented and proprietary low-CO2 battery recycling solutions that enable over 80% of the battery and 95% of valuable metals to be recycled.
