Recycling and

Manufacturing batteries has come a long way and in just a few short years we have seen several innovative new chemistries come to market. We are here to help you evolve and thrive in this ever-changing world. We can provide guidance in such areas as registration, logistics, data collection, recycling, repurpose and legal obligations. Our core services are based around Recycling and Compliance.

Refurbish, Repurpose, Recycling

We are an urban mining facilitator, enabling the sourcing of precious metals and materials for the purpose of reuse. We specialize in all types of batteries.


We provide advice, support and services to producers and distributors of batteries and accumulators to comply with European battery legislation and the Extended Producers Responsibility.

NOWOS recycles in 3 steps:



The product is repaired, so it can be used again. This lowers the demand on new resources.



The end of life of a product does not mean it can’t be used again. For example an EV battery that can not meet the requirements to be used in a car is suitable in many cases to be repurposed for residential energy storage.


Reclaim raw materials

If a product can not be reused or repurposed, it can be dismantled. The components that are suitable can start a second life on a refurbished battery or even a new product. The components that can not be re-used, are processed to their raw material and used in new products.

In this way, we keep the waste to a minimum!


Through our in-depth knowledge and experience of the (Lithium-Ion) batteries industry,
NOWOS can offer unparalleled understanding and access to batteries of varying chemistries and types.

NOWOS and Compliance

Advice, support and services

The additional waste management legislation in Europe aims to improve and transform the sustainable material management. In order to make the economy truly circular, the Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) principle has been introduced with specific additional measures for producers/importers of batteries and accumulators on top of the EU Battery Directive.

To comply with the EPR principle and the EU Battery Directive, NOWOS advices and supports the producers/importers of batteries.

Our story

With the global population predicted to reach 9 billion people by 2030 the circular economy is here to stay. We are using more resources than the planet can provide, and our future depends on reusing what we have in a sustainable way. One way is to develop ingenious ways to Refurbish, Repurpose, Recycling batteries.

We aim to make the circular economy a reality by providing solutions for all types of battery chemistries, tailored to your needs. We can draw specifically on our extensive knowledge and expertise of lithium and portable batteries to handle even the most challenging materials and future new chemistries such as Hydrogen fuel cells.

NOWOS works in partnership with strategically located partners and battery manufacturers, making its services a straight forward choice for companies in Europe.
