Lithium-ion batteries are the most common type to be used as energy source in mobile phone. The amount of lithium-ion battery wastes is approximated by 200 - 500 ton/year. In one lithium-ion battery, there are 5 - 20% of cobalt metal, depend on the manufacturer. One of the way to recover a valuable metal from waste is leaching process then continued with extraction. Spent lithium-ion batteries will be characterized with EDX and AAS, the result will show the amount of cobalt metal with form of LiCoO2 in the cathode. Hydrochloric acid 4 M, temperature 80°C, and reaction time 1 hour condition give out the best leaching efficiency for both Co and Mn metals, 88.54% and 89.28% respectively. For extraction, the best extraction efficiency achieved when feed phase pH is 5 for Co and 6 for Mn. This study will discuss the leaching and extraction process and compare the efficiency for both processes.
