Towards a circular economy of electric vehicle batteries

With the growing number of electric vehicles on the roads, the question looms - what to do with the batteries when these vehicles reach the end of life? This webinar will explore the pathways to a circular economy of electric vehicle batteries, considering the reuse and recycling of lithium-ion batteries, different pathways for lithium-ion battery recycling and future directions for improving the processes used to treat electric vehicle batteries at the end of life as volumes of batteries needing to be recycled start to grow in the future.

The webinar will considered

  • the current state-of-the-art technologies used to process electric vehicle batteries and asks participants to consider what needs to change as the industry scales into the future;
  • the future demand for the critical raw materials used in electric vehicle batteries; 
  • how effective end of life management can assist in ensuring resilience for Western automakers by providing a source of key raw materials for battery manufacturing in the future.
