First America Expands Reuse and Recycling Capabilities into New Energy and EV/HEV Sectors

Showcasing Expanded Offerings at The Battery Show, RE+ and E-Scrap

MORRIS, Ill. (Sept. 11, 2023) – First America, a longtime national leader in certified technology remarketing and recycling, today announced that, through a series of service expansions and new partnerships, it is now supporting customer reuse and recycling efforts across new energy and electric and hybrid vehicle sectors.

To showcase these expanded capabilities, First America is participating in RE+, Sept. 11 – 14 in Las Vegas with Vestwoods (booth 2818), one of its partners in solar technology reuse; The Battery Show (booth 1554), held in conjunction with the EV and HV Technology Expo, Sept. 12 – 14, in Novi (Detroit), Mich.; and the E-Scrap Conference (booth 101), Sept. 18 – 20, in New Orleans.

“To our clients working with solar and other renewable energy, EV and HV technologies, and related batteries and fuel cells, First America now offers the full-circle reuse and recycling services we have long provided for traditional electronics,” said James Li, CEO, First America.

“Solar and EV technologies are intended to create a cleaner, greener future for our children and grandchildren, but that will only happen if we reuse and recycle assets from these technologies, and that is where First America comes in,” Li said. “We can help already-green-minded customers recover additional monetary value by processing whole units and components, such as PV panels, for sale or reuse, and recycling these and other materials.”
