Researchers are recycling old Nissan Leaf batteries using... bacteria?

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland are investigating a way to recover the metallic content of EV batteries with bioengineered bacteria. The new method involves processing spent Nissan Leaf batteries into a “leachate” — a liquified battery slurry — and combining that slurry with said microbes. The method isn’t described in a lot of detail, admittedly. Other than saying…
