Circularity And Second Life Concepts Applied To Batteries & Related Components


07:45 – 08:45 PRE-CONFERENCE BREAKFAST BRIEFING

5 – 10 Year Prognosis For Procuring Sustainable Battery Raw Materials And Establishing A Domestic US Supply Chain That Is Sustainable

The rapid uptake of electric vehicles means an increased demand for critical battery materials, associated resource challenges, and supply chain risks. The purpose of this breakfast briefing is to update sustainability executives on the mapping out of the diversification of a sustainable lithium and EV battery raw material supply chain for North America. Based on new research into OEM perspectives on diversifying the lithium supply chain & related battery chemistries across the portfolio, delivering a vision of where future supply could come from? This breakfast briefing is a must-attend for all senior sustainability executives.

BATTERY DESIGN FOR RECYCLING COLLABORATION

11:10 Establishing A Closer Partnership With OEMs Regarding Battery Design To Consider End-Of-Life Recycling During The Design Phase

The following session includes battery makers discussing the importance of product design and battery recycling efficiency. The method of an electric vehicle battery is sometimes disregarded in conversations about battery recycling and end-of-life. Battery packs for automotive applications must be both power and energy dense, which can only be accomplished by aggregating cells into modules and modules into packs. The cells are sealed, and the modules and packs are frequently fastened together using adhesives. This makes the disassembly difficult but not impossible if the industry works together to solve the issue.

Innovating The Future Design Of EV Batteries To Enable Easier Disassembly At The End Of Life

- Macros design considerations including Pyro and hydro metallurgical methods blended with mechanical separation

- Micro design consideration

- Making the business and environmental case to design batteries differently

11:30 Q&A -  How Can OEMs And Battery Manufacturers Improve Collaboration To Address EV  Battery Circularity

DELIVERING A SECOND-LIFE BATTERY APPROACH THAT WORKS

11:50 Two Case Studies Comparing Pathways For EV Battery Second Life That Is Effective

The second life of the battery varies from eight to 20 years, depending on the application and the requirements. Many OEMs are reutilizing batteries for renewable energy storage to limit environmental impact.

Storage applications are further complicated because a better understanding of battery degradation is required.

- Processing batteries for Second Life Application

- Mapping out the subprocesses, including battery return assessment, integration, and recycling

- They were planning the battery repurposing and refurbishing processes before they were ready to be used in the new applications.

- What are the most cost-effective approaches to adapting processes depending on the level of dismantling required for the battery type considering cell structure design for battery dismantling and assembling process?

- Analyzing the feasibility of repurposing EV batteries for electricity and utility applications

- Making the economics of using Second Life batteries work
