Webinar: Metallurgy of Lithium Ion Battery Recycling

PD Hours
Lithium-Ion batteries (LIB) play an important role in everyday life and their relevance is growing. However, recycling efforts are unable to keep up with this development.

About this event

This webinar will go through some of the technical challenges and solutions available for lithium ion batteries as well as the state of the industry and a disruptive technology developed by XProEM Ltd. which could be a game changer in LIB recycling.


Prof. Kinnor Chattopadhyay

Associate Professor & Entrepreneur, Co-Founder, XProEM Ltd. Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Prof. Kinnor Chattopadhyay is a process metallurgist and has 12 years of experience in metallurgical process consulting and research. He has extensive knowledge of heat, mass and fluid flow, metallurgical thermodynamics, liquid metals processing and casting and has worked with numerous clients internationally. He has 160+ publications and 6 inventions to his credit and has presented at various international forums across the globe. He is currently the Dean's Catalyst Professor in the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto, and works in the area of process/extractive metallurgy.

Kinnor focuses on physical and mathematical modelling of metallurgical process for designing new processes, better understanding of existing process, operational improvements, and to perform ‘what if’ and ‘root cause’ analyses of problems. Fundamentals of metallurgical thermodynamics, transport phenomena and CFD modelling are applied to simulate real industrial processes. Integrated Modelling Solutions (Data Driven Modelling +ANN +Thermodynamic Modelling +Computational Fluid Dynamics) are proposed to develop and design new processes or to improve existing ones. Kinnor is also the Co-Founder of XProEM Ltd., which is a company focussing on the sustainable recycling of spent Lithium Ion Batteries.
