OnTo Technology was among 7 teams to be awarded the Phase II Department of Energy Made in America Battery Recycling Prize. This $357,000 cash prize will go toward developing and implementing OnTo's comprehensive DISC solution: Deactivate, Identify, Sort, Cut. The award also includes a voucher to be used at Sandia National Laboratories in their Battery Abuse Testing Lab. This collaboration will demonstrate that OnTo's process removes hazards from end-of-life batteries, making shipping to a recycler safe and inexpensive.
