Do you have a drawer or box filled with old laptops and smartphones? Or perhaps your electric vehicle is reaching the end of its life and you're shopping for a new one? What happens to the lithium batteries powering each of these machines? Ajay Kochhar has an answer. He and fellow battery expert Tim Johnston launched Li-Cyle — a startup devoted to recover critical materials from lithium-ion batteries and reintroducing them back into the supply chain. That way, they're not just sitting around in landfills — or worse — seeping materials into the earth. Also, they're reducing the need for mining, which takes a devastating toll on human lives. Tune in to learn how University of Toronto alum Ajay wields his clean tech company to not only solve the global battery problem, but recycle those important battery ingredients back to the manufacturers that need them. And discover what you can do to help!
