Closing The Loop: Strategies Ahead for Reuse, Recycling of Li-ion BEV Batteries

A look at the market potential for reclaimed L-ion batteries and the ecosystem needed to support it.

With forecasts of 41 million BEVs and PHEVs sold from 2020 through 2025, and battery-powered vehicles ultimately expected to dominate the 1 billion-vehicle global fleet, solutions for dealing with end-of-life lithium-ion batteries will be critical. Metals from manufacturing waste and finished batteries that are improperly disposed of will negatively impact the environment and potentially cause fires. Recycling efforts are under way, as is repurposing of Li-ion packs, but what does the future hold for these sectors? This report examines those – OEMs, battery manufacturers, recyclers, repurposers, policymakers and others – with stakes in the game.
