Battery Lifecycle Summit

June 4, 2024 | Online

All-New FREE Event Dedicated to Battery Recycling

We hear the term ‘cradle-to-grave’ quite often, but rarely when we're discussing batteries and fuel cells. But we should hear it more often to ensure we're sourcing, utilizing, and disposing them in a more thoughtful and environmentally responsible manner. Therefore, the inaugural Battery Lifecycle Summit, an SAE Sustainability Event, will convene mining, energy, manufacturing, and policy leaders to discuss the latest news, updates, challenges, and opportunities surrounding the true lifecycle of a battery – from the mining and sourcing of their raw materials, to their ultimate end-of-life whether that be recycling, reuse, or disposal.
