Sarah Fleischer, Co-Founder and CEO at tozero

Battery recycling is a necessity in order to close the loop of the decarbonization challenge. Therefore, we as tozero are on a mission to truly bring this battery waste to zero and recover all critical materials, like lithium, nickel, and cobalt.
CIRCULAR REPUBLIC is a fantastic initiative that brings leading players across industries together to shape the next generation technologies for a circular economy. We are proud to contribute and be part of this community.

Christian Schiller, Co-Founder and CEO at cirplus

Don’t be a plastic hater, be a hater of plastic in the environment: Condemning the whole material just because we don’t run it sensibly in circles ultimately solves no problem. Plastic has an incredible number of positive properties that will help us counter climate change and the climate crisis. CIRCULAR REPUBLIC helps cirplus to connect with relevant partners to join forces and to push ciruclar economy for a sustainable future.

Niclas Lehnert, Co-Founder and CEO at BAVERTIS

A circular approach to batteries starts with using this valuable resource as long and as efficiently as possible. For this reason, we at BAVERTIS are working on a technology to double the life of electric vehicle batteries and enable them to be reused in other applications via a simple software update. Keeping them in the loop as long as possible. 

In this context, CIRCULA REPUBLIC acts as a remarkable intermediary between industry partners and us, to promote and leverage joint synergies for a circular future!
