CEO and Co-founder
Solveteq Ltd.

Ola Hekselman is a chemist, who changed her research interests from developing the next-generation materials for Li-ion batteries to battery recycling in 2018. Her work with Prof. David Payne at Imperial College London on a solvent-based method to recover lead from spent lead-acid batteries led to the formation of Solveteq, an Imperial spin-out company, in 2021.

Solveteq is dedicated to developing low-energy and sustainable solutions for battery recyclers. Ola and her team received a Women in Innovation Award from Innovate UK in March 2023.
