About Us

Find out more about the history of the SER Group, our journey in lithium battery recycling, and the company’s core values. 

Who we are

The SER Group was founded with the aim to create a sustainable future through IT and WEEE recycling. As of today, the SER Group has established itself as one of the leading recycling companies in the UK. With SER’s vast experience within the recycling industry it became apparent that there was an ongoing demand for a lithium battery recycling solution in the UK and internationally.

As an answer to this growing demand the SER Group founded Cellcycle.
