Physical Characterization of Battery Black Mass

Black mass is a waste material in the battery recycling process. Anton Paar instruments were used to determine its physical properties, including tap and skeletal density, surface area, and pore size, to establish viability for recycling and other applications.

In the battery industry, black mass describes the waste comprised of crushed and shredded battery cells. Black mass contains a mixture of metals including lithium, manganese, cobalt, and nickel, as well as organic compounds from the electrolyte and binders. The physical properties of the black mass can be used to screen the compound for the viability of reuse or recycling. Learn how four Anton Paar instruments were used to provide these important physical characteristics.
