Some recycling technologies are used to processing of waste lithium batteries. The treatment can be carried out pyro-metallurgically, hydro-metallurgically or both with respect to which metals must be obtained. Still looking for new ways to effectively process the waste Li batteries, so for example bio-metallurgy is also used. The Li-Ion batteries also contain other metals such as cobalt, copper, nickel and aluminium outside of lithium, which are very difficult to obtain. There are many types of lithium batteries, and the content of these metals is variable in each battery components. This paper is focused on the recovery of these metals by a pyrometallurgical process using a collector.Keywords: Lithium batteries, cobalt, pyrometallurgy, recycling, metals recovery
