Emerging Technology Forum:
Lithium-ion Battery Recycling

The rapid growth in global demand for lithium-ion batteries in consumer electronics, electric vehicles and energy storage applications has created a corresponding urgent need to tackle the challenge of waste management when these batteries come to their end-of-life. Along with new government regulations to minimise the harmful effects of disposed batteries, lithium-ion battery recycling opens new opportunities for battery manufacturers and recyclers to address environmental concerns as well as recover the scarce metals from spent batteries or repurpose for a second-life application.

Join us at the Emerging Technology Forum on Lithium-ion Battery Recycling to understand the market drivers and industry needs that are changing the battery recycling landscape, and the emerging technologies addressing these demands.
