Nevada Technology Corporation

About Us

Nevada Technology Corporation (NTC) is a battery recycling and repurposing company based in Reno, Nevada. We specialize in the safe and environmentally responsible recycling of lithium-ion batteries, which are used in a wide variety of products, including electric vehicles, laptops, and cell phones.

NTC’s battery recycling process is designed to recover as much of the valuable materials in the batteries as possible. We use a hydrometallurgical process that dissolves the batteries in a solution, which allows us to recover the lithium, cobalt, nickel, and other metals. These metals are then sold to be used in new batteries or other products.

In addition to recycling batteries, NTC also offers a repurposing service for batteries that are no longer suitable for use in their original applications. We can refurbish these batteries for use in other applications, such as backup power or energy storage.

NTC’s battery recycling and repurposing business is helping to reduce the environmental impact of lithium-ion batteries. By recycling batteries, we are preventing them from ending up in landfills, where they can release harmful pollutants into the environment. We are also helping to conserve the valuable metals in these batteries, which can be used to make new batteries or other products.

NTC is committed to providing our customers with a safe, environmentally responsible, and cost-effective battery recycling and repurposing service. We are proud to be a leader in this growing industry, and we look forward to helping to make a difference in the world
