Managing End-of-Life Li-ion Batteries, 2020 Study - Use Case Analysis of Prominent Battery Recyclers along with Their Recycling Methodology & Achieved Recovery Efficiencies

DUBLIN, April 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Managing End-of-Life Li-ion Batteries: Battery Recycling Technologies" report has been added to's offering.

    --  Policy level initiatives to meet greenhouse gas emission reduction
        targets and the drive to improve the air quality in urban cities are
        expected to keep supporting the sales growth in electric vehicles across
        the globe, which has already crossed 2 million units in 2019.
    --  Further, the consequent increase in spent lithium-ion batteries (LIBs)
        is likely to present itself as a challenge for waste management, as well
        as an opportunity for the battery recyclers, to recover valuable metals
        like lithium and cobalt, making battery recycling a valuable secondary
        source for key raw materials.
    --  Government organizations, research institutions, and battery
        manufacturers have already begun collaborating for technological
        advancements in battery recycling technologies.

This report provides use case analysis of prominent battery recyclers along with their recycling methodology and achieved recovery efficiencies.

Further, the study focuses on the following topics: research and development (R&D) activities in the LIB recycling landscape, techno-economic analysis of recycling different LIB chemistries, current market trends & major innovations, factors driving the adoption and development of recycling technology, challenges in the battery recycling supply chain, and key initiatives undertaken to promote the LIB recycling industry.
