SungEel MCC Americas Announces Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Plant Location in New York State


SungEel MCC Americas (SMCC) announced the location of its first plant which will redefine the North American lithium-ion battery, e-waste recycling, energy, and metals markets. The Endicott, New York plant will be located in the Huron Campus, formerly the IBM-Endicott facility. SMCC will leverage over $ 1.75 MM in incentives from New York State and create over 100 research, engineering, and manufacturing jobs.

 

Approximately 50 % of LIBs are recovered and recycled in the European Union and some Asian countries, whereas less than 5 % of all LIBs are recycled in the United States. Cobalt and lithium are the two most valuable metals found in LIBs, with consumption of both outpacing supplies in recent years. The United States lacks the domestic supply of both strategic metals. SMCC will recover these valuable metals through an efficient and environmentally friendly process. The recovered metals can be used in the manufacture of new lithium-ion batteries as well as multiple industrial applications. 

 

“We are excited to be at the forefront of lithium-ion battery recycling in the United States and to create quality, hi-tech, green jobs in our home state of New York. The State’s energy storage initiative makes the Southern Tier an obvious choice. We look forward to leveraging the region’s educational institutions, technological resources, and manufacturing tradition to add to the incredible progress New York State has made in energy storage technology,” said Danish Mir, COO of Metallica Commodities Corp. and SMCC President.

 

“Throughout the Southern Tier, companies are finding innovative new uses for existing facilities. This international partnership recycling lithium batteries will foster the supply of a product in high demand and expand the thriving energy storage industry in the region,” said Howard Zemsky, President, CEO, and Commissioner of Empire State Development.

 

“We are delighted to welcome SungEel MCC Americas to the Huron Campus and look forward to their contributions in building the infrastructure to support the clean energy and advanced manufacturing initiatives at the Huron Campus in Endicott,” said Christopher Pelto, President of Huron Real Estate Associates, LLC.
