SENZA SFONDO testo bianco


AraBat is a circular economy startup

that develops innovative processes for recycling hazardous waste, such as WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and spent lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Our mission is to commercialize the secondary raw materials recovered from them. The company is also involved in the development of other circular processes in the production of renewable energy and consultancy activities in the field of the green economy. Sustainability and circular economy are fundamental values in AraBat’s corporate strategy. Our main business project offers a recycling process of spent LIBs and the reintegration of precious metal compounds, recovered through an innovative hydrometallurgical system based on other waste (agro-food waste).
