About Us

Circunomics GmbH was founded in 2019 and is already one of the leading companies in battery circularity. The company is based in Mainz. Founders Felix Wagner and Jan Born have set themselves the goal of establishing a circular battery economy by inspiring a movement of taking batteries from first-life in electric vehicles to second-life applications and finally recycling any remaining raw materials.

The Circunomics team has developed an innovative digital marketplace where digital “circular twins” can be registered, tracked, and traded for battery packs. The company has been supported thus far by seed investors and business angels. Startup builder Next Mobility Labs, recycler TES, Orlen VC, and Dr. Peter Mertens, former Chief Technology Officer of Audi, are some key players.

US-based company Frost & Sullivan awarded Circunomics the 2023 Market Leadership Award. The award identified Circunomics as the best in class in the European circular marketplace for the battery trading industry.

Most recently, Circunomics was awarded 2nd Best StartUp 2023 within the automotive industry by Automobilwoche.
