  • Li-Cycle Holdings Corp LICY has entered into a conditional commitment for a $375 million loan with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Loan Programs Office (LPO) through Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing (ATVM).
  • The conditional commitment endorses Li-Cycle's development of the first commercial hydrometallurgical resource recovery facility in North America, located near Rochester, New York.
  • This is the first conditional commitment from the DOE ATVM program for a sustainable pure-play battery materials recycling company.

  • The loan will have a term of up to 12 years from financial close, and interest on the loan will be the 10-year U.S. Treasury Rates from the date of each advance for the loan.
  • “As a sustainable pure-play battery material recycling company, we expect the Rochester Hub will position Li-Cycle as a leading domestic producer of recycled battery-grade materials for accelerating electrification demand to address climate change and secure energy independence,” said CEO Ajay Kochhar.
  • Price Action: LICY shares are trading higher by 14.11% at $6.47 on the last check Monday.
