Battery tech startup LOHUM raises $54 Mn in Series B


Battery tech startup LOHUM has announced that it raised $54 million in a Series B funding from Singularity Growth, Baring Private Equity, Cactus Venture Partners, and Venture East among other new and existing venture firms.

LOHUM will use these funds to fuel its market expansion, scaling up recycling operations across India, the firm said in a press release. It will also expand to new energy transitioning markets in North America, the EU and MENA region.

The firm has already raised more than $37 million across multiple tranches and was valued at around $422 million post-allotment of the latest tranche. Entrackr had exclusively reported both the developments. 

Lohum claims to be one of the largest producers of sustainable energy transition materials through integrated battery recycling & raw material refining and battery repurposing. The company also said that its lithium-ion battery material recycling and extraction technology regenerates top-quality materials and produces zero waste. 

The company repurposes EV batteries to make second-life energy storage systems (ESS) for renewable energy storage and grid stabilization.

As of early 2024, LOHUM plans to have an in-house ecosystem of battery recycling, battery repurposing, transition materials refining, Cathode Active Material (CAM), i.e. integrated battery lifecycle management. 

Lohum also performed well during the last fiscal year as its revenue surged nearly three-fold to Rs 308 crore from Rs 106 crore in FY23. The company posted back to back profits in the past three fiscal years. Check startup data intelligence platform TheKredible for more details.
