I had the honor of testifying on July 17 before the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on the subject of lithium-ion battery recycling in the United States.  The Senate's interest in the topic is timely, given NAATBatt's just ended workshop on the same subject in Buffalo, New York.  A copy of my oral testimony is reproduced below.  The longer and more detailed written version of my testimony can be seen by clicking here: Oral Remarks Good morning Chairman Barrasso, Ranking Member Carper, and members of the Committee.  My name is James Greenberger.  I am the Executive Director of [...]

Interest in Workshop on Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling Exceeds Expectations

2019-07-13T01:41:13+00:00

This past week in Buffalo, New York, NAATBatt hosted a Workshop on Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling.  The purpose of the workshop was to focus industry attention on the next great challenge in vehicle electrification:  safely, responsibly and profitably disposing of lithium-ion batteries at the end of their useful lives. Today lithium-ion batteries reaching the end of their useful lives are not being recycled in any significant quantities in North America.  The cost of transporting those used batteries to recycling facilities, and of recycling facilities processing those batteries, exceeds in almost all cases the profit that any recycler can expect to make from [...]

Recycling Workshop Highlights the Importance of Recycling EV Batteries

2019-07-08T04:07:28+00:00

The NAATBatt Workshop on Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling, on July 9-10, 2019, in Buffalo, New York, will take an in depth look at one of the most important issues in vehicle electrification:  recycling lithium-ion batteries. The program will look at four major problems in lithium-ion battery recycling:  collection of batteries, separation and sorting, transportation and storage, and recycling technologies.  Each of these four problems needs better solutions than those available today in order to ensure that a significant percentage of the lithium-ion batteries soon to come out of electric vehicles at the end of their lives are responsibly recycled. But before [...]
