CellCircle was founded in 2022 as a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC and is based in Würzburg. The company's core competence is its innovative and particularly efficient battery recycling. In addition, the associated distribution of functional battery materials.

Founder Dr Andreas Bittner is thus taking the next step in his mission after more than twelve years of research in the field of battery material development and recycling: "My goal is to improve the resource efficiency of the European battery industry with our innovative methods and to contribute to a sustainable circular economy. This will ensure more independence for our economy".

Through many years of cooperation, CellCircle is currently establishing itself as a flexible team of diverse experts who contribute their expert knowledge depending on the project.

"The efficient recovery and regeneration of functional battery­materials must become self­understandable in the future. "

Because a sustainable circular economy is the key to more economic strength and autonomy. With innovative methods and processes, CellCircle is part of the industrial implementation of this disruptive recycling approach.
