Necessity and Challenges of the Circular Economy

What are the needs and challenges of battery recycling? What is the need for materials recycling for sustainable E-Mobility?

In this video we will explore the vital concept of a circular economy for batteries.

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.
