Necesity and Challenges of Circular Economy

Necesity and Challenges of Circular Economy.

In this video we will explore the vital concept of a circular economy for batteries with Christoph Lienemann, Managing Director & Partner for North America at PEM Motion, specialized in E-Mobility, lithium-ion batteries, and circular economy.

If you took Course 1 from our series: Course 1 – Exploring the World of Electric Mobility: Key Concepts and Strategies you might remember this topic, which is very important for understanding the importance of Circular Economy and its relation to EVs and E-Buses.

The growing demand for batteries, driven by the rapid electrification of various sectors, requires a paradigm shift in our approach to their life cycle management. As batteries power our daily lives, from portable devices to EVs and renewable energy storage, the volume of discarded batteries presents significant challenges for waste management and resource conservation. A circular economy for batteries aims to break the linear “take, make, dispose” model by prioritizing the recovery, reuse, and recycling of battery materials.

We will explore the urgent need to adopt circular practices to ensure sustainability and address the challenges posed by battery waste.
