Battery recycling firm SiTration raises $2.35 million for its separation technology

Battery recycling technology startup SiTration has raised $2.35 million in pre-seed funding for hiring and for the development of its patented separation technology for materials extraction in battery recycling.

“By replacing the chemical and thermal separation methods used in battery recycling today with an electrified approach, SiTration is unlocking ultra-efficient recovery of materials foundational to a more sustainable future,” says co-founder and CEO of SiTration Brendan Smith.

“Built upon years of R&D at MIT, SiTration’s patented conductive membrane technology can reduce the energy needed for materials extraction by as much as 10 times, while enabling a recovery yield over 95 percent,” says the company.
