Li-ion battery waste used in biodiesel production from discarded vegetable oil

Brazilian researchers have demonstrated a new chemical approach for producing biodiesel from domestic cooking oil waste by using lithium hydroxide mixed with either sodium hydroxides or potassium hydroxides as catalysts. Their work, published in the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy , could enable future studies related to the use of lithium from waste lithium-ion batteries. Before, in practice, these were just restricted to sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide.
