New EV battery recycling facility planned for Toyota site

The imminent arrival of a Toyota battery manufacturing site in Liberty continues to spur additional economic growth.

Green Metals, Inc. (GMI) is planning to build a facility to support EV battery waste and recycling. The plant will be located on the Greensboro-Randolph Megasite campus, which is expected to open in 2025.

GMI , which is a Toyota subsidiary, will invest nearly $20 million over the next five years in property, machinery, and equipment. The facility is expected to bring an additional 47 jobs to the area with what a news release calls a “competitive wages and benefits package.”

Randolph Community College will provide training support.

In addition to processing dry battery material, the plant will be responsible for the handling and recycling of other waste materials including cardboard and plastic.
