TES Awarded for Global Sustainability

As part of the 2023 Sustainability Awards program, the battery recycling service of Singapore-based TES was named today by the Business Intelligence Group as a Sustainability Service of the Year. The Sustainability Awards honor people, teams, and organizations worldwide that have made sustainability an integral part of their business practices or overall missions.

The Sustainable End-of-Life Batteries Management service offered globally by TES deploys the company's expertise in waste compliance and hazardous goods regulations to analyze and design customers' end-of-life battery needs. Batteries directed to TES facilities go through a recycling process that uses proprietary in-house technology to recover and recycle up to 99% of battery materials, yielding a high-quality black mass that recovers nickel, lithium, and cobalt for reuse in the forward manufacturing supply chain.

"This honor is attributed to the diligent team at TES, who has worked toward ensuring that our customers' end-of-life batteries from electric vehicles and other applications are handled responsibly with industry-leading recycling outcomes," says Thomas Holberg, TES's Group Vice President—Sustainable Battery Solutions. "TES and our parent company, SK ecoplant, continuously invest in technology to be the world leader in battery recycling."

"We are proud to recognize and reward TES for its sustainability efforts," says Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer of the US-based Business Intelligence Group. "It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!"

Our 40 owned facilities across 21 countries offer unmatched service-level consistency, consistent commercials, lower logistics costs, in-region local compliance experts, support in local time zones and languages, and a deep understanding of the global transboundary movement.
