SUSTAINING OUR WORLD WITH INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

This is our vision. Our dream. Our passion.

The resources within our world are becoming more and more rare. Especially when we develop new technologies that should support with lowering the environmental damage, we often produce new problems which again increase the environmental impact. As Niocycle Technologies Corporation we want to solve the main problems that come with new technologies. We want to enable new technologies to become more environmentally friendly.

The transition towards electric mobility is not 100% carbon neutral and it is time that we all accept this fact.

Unfortunately, electric vehicles were presented as 100% carbon neutral in the last years. In fact, this is not true. If we look at the entire supply chain, electric vehicles emit around 30 tons of CO2 eq. during their life time. In order to get electric vehicles more sustainable, recycling and reusing the most important components becomes crucial. The biggest impact is done by the mining of the raw materials and the production of Lithium-Ion Batteries. Around 140 kg of CO2 equivalents per kWh are emitted during the production of Lithium-Ion Batteries. If we think about a Tesla Model S with a 95kWh battery, this would lead to an emission of 13.3 tons of CO2 eq. Adding the in majority still fossil based energy sources for the electricity to charge the batteries, the 30 tons CO2 eq. per Lifetime are easy to understand. 

In order to support this transition, we need to recover the used raw-materials and reduce the dependency on primary materials. In the last years a lot of Companies claimed to be able to recover those materials using shredding and crushing mechanisms as a pre-treatment. This is not a new technology and was used for lead-acid batteries for decades. Furthermore, during shredding and crushing processes 20 to 40% of the material weights get lost. When we as Niocycle Technologies started our Journey, it was 100% clear for us that we need to find an alternative solution, if we want to have a sufficient recycling process for Lithium-Ion Batteries. 

WE ARE SURROUNDED WITH THE BEST ENVIRONMENT AT THE IT-VALLEY.

Especially in the beginning phase it is essential for a startup to have access to important resources like information, network, technical equipment, mentors and more. We as NIOCYCLE are very happy to be part of the most modern startup hubs in the world. 

The IT Valley in Gebze (Kocaeli, Turkey), was founded by the Ministry for Technologies of Turkey and started the activities in 2017. 

With more than 120 startups and tech companies in the fields of IT, Robotics, Energy, Future Automotive Technologies, Electronics and much more, the IT-Valley delivers a perfect eco-system for cooperations and common projects. 

ABOUT US.

WE ENABLE INDUSTRIES TO RECOVER THE WORLDS LITHIUM ION BATTERY MATERIALS TO MAKE THEM REUSABLE AND IMMORTAL!

While the demand for lithium-ion batteries is increasing exponentially the required resources are limited leading to a twofold demand to supply in 2050. However, while further increased efforts for mining and raw material extraction might resolve some demand issues, it also introduces high levels of pollution, safety concerns, equality, inclusion, and social responsibility issues all around the globe. However, to minimize further mining needs, we as Niocycle want to change the ecosystem and business environment by imposing circular economy strategies. Thus, Niocycle's main objective is to innovate sustainable and profitable technologies and our primary step is the implementation and roll-out of a highly efficient and environmentally friendly lithium-ion battery recycling process for batteries from electrical vehicles but also notebooks, mobile phones and other devices.
