Elemental Analysis of Metals in the Li-Battery Value Chain by ICP-MS

Batteries often contain a large number of metals, such as Li, Co, Ni, Cu, Mn, Fe, etc. Recycling batteries could reduce environmental pollution, and produce Ni, Co, Mn, and Li salts, as well as ternary anode materials and precursors, which can be used directly in the production of lithium battery cells, which is of great significance in building a closed loop industry chain, effectively recovering the cost of batteries.

To test the level of inorganic impurities in recycled battery components, the analysis of the main components, and trace metals using a sensitive, multi-element technique such as ICP-MS is used.
