With the University of Cambridge as a partner and sub-contractor, Aurelius Environmental have been awarded a grant worth over €1.3m to develop a novel hydrometallurgical process for recycling lead from lead batteries. Aurelius has received licensing support from Cambridge Enterprise, the university’s commercial arm.
