The inventor of a water-based battery manufacturing and recycling technology will receive a £1 million (US$1.2 million) cash prize to help scale up its operations Accion Andina, WildAid Marine Program, S4S Technologies, and Boomitra were the other winners GRST, an eco-friendly lithium battery technology start-up based in Hong Kong, has been named one of five winners of this year’s Earthshot Prize. The inventor of a water-based battery manufacturing and recycling technology will receive a £1 million (US$1.2 million) cash prize to help scale up its operations to bring positive impact to the planet’s climate, environment and people. It was among 15 finalists nominated in September. GRST is the first company from Hong Kong or mainland China to win the prestigious award. “With the development of a new way to build and recycle vital lithium-ion batteries, GRST’s solution offers a pathway to make the electric cars of the future even cleaner,” said an Earthshot Prize statement issued during the awards ceremony held in Singapore late on Tuesday. GRST was the winner in the “Clean Our Air” category. Britain’s Prince William launched the Earthshot Prize in 2020 to search for and scale up the most innovative solutions to the world’s greatest environmental challenges by 2030. 01:53 Prince William takes part in dragon boat race in Singapore during first visit in 11 years Prince William takes part in dragon boat race in Singapore during first visit in 11 years “The last year has been one of great change and even greater challenge,” Prince William said in the statement. “A year in which the effects of the climate crisis have become too visible to be ignored.” The five winners were selected by Prince William and the Earthshot Prize council, chaired by Christiana Figueres, architect of the Paris Agreement signed by over 190 nations that have made commitments to decarbonise their economies and fight climate change. The other winners include South American forest protection community-based initiative Accion Andina, ocean conservation group WildAid Marine Program, India-based solar-power crop-drying equipment developer S4S Technologies, and land restoration carbon-credit marketplace operator Boomitra. GRST, founded in 2015 and based in the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park, said its technology could cut emissions of greenhouse gases by up to 40 per cent during the production of lithium-ion batteries and by up to 80 per cent during recycling. The performance has been certified by testing services provider TUV Rheinland, according to GRST. GRST CEO and co-founder Justin Hung said the start-up aims to raise US$50 million over the next two years.

Today, our water-based technology is driving this transformation to provide consumers with a sustainable energy future.” The start-up aims to raise US$50 million over the next two years to fund joint ventures in Europe and North America, as it vies to grab a slice of the fast-growing sustainable batteries market, Hung told the Post last month. This includes raising about US$25 million through its series B fundraising round in the next few months to add some strategic collaborators to its shareholder base. Europe, where the regulatory body announced in July that it would tighten sustainability rules for batteries throughout their life cycle, is a priority market, Hung said. The entire lithium-ion battery supply chain, from mining to batteries recycling, could grow by over 30 per cent annually between last year and 2030, when it could reach a scale of 4.7 trillion kilowatt-hours valued at over US$400 billion, according to business consultancy McKinsey’s forecast. Conventional batteries are energy-intensive because they need to be produced at high temperature and low humidity, and require binding chemicals made from fossil fuels. GRST’s technology removes such requirements. Recycling of conventional batteries is also highly energy-intensive and results in the emission of toxic fumes. Post
