Final Disposition of Electric Vehicle Batteries EPR2022026

The battery electric vehicle (EV) industry has experienced considerable growth over the last few years, demonstrating a clear acceleration in adoption and deployment. However, there are still many questions concerning what will happen to batteries as they reach their end of life (EOL), as batteries that have “aged out” can either be reused, recycled, or go to a landfill.
Final Disposition of Electric Vehicle Batteries addresses some unsettled issues around lithium-ion battery reuse and recycling. Insufficient investment and regulations are a current barrier to a robust reuse system, and safety concerns potentially hinder adoption. Despite the benefits of battery recycling, there are also many challenges when considering their transportation and disassembly. These challenges will need to be addressed as the industry sees an influx of EV batteries reaching their EOL within the next 10 years.
