The Hyatt Regency Buffalo, Buffalo, New York

Recycling lithium-ion batteries is the next great challenge as North America looks to electrify its transportation infrastructure.  As lithium-ion batteries, and lithium-ion battery waste, become ubiquitous, there is a critical need to develop effective, low-cost and environmentally sounds ways to collect and recycle those used batteries. 

Used lithium-ion batteries may pose an environmental threat.  But they may also provide a strategic opportunity for North America to recover and access energy materials, such as lithium, hi-grade nickel and cobalt, that may otherwise be difficult to source and subject to external price and supply disruption.  Lithium-ion battery recycling represents a huge economic opportunity for companies who can find a way to make recycling work.  The workshop will help attendees identify some of those opportunities.

The workshop will focus on four key challenges to lithium-ion battery recycling in North America:

  • Collection of Batteries
  • Separation and Sorting
  • Transportation and Storage
  • Recycling Technologies

How lithium-ion batteries are being recycled today will be discussed and what other industries with more mature recycling infrastructure are doing will be analyzed.  NAATBatt members and non-members are welcome at the workshop and strongly encouraged to register.

NAATBatt is pleased to offer this workshop, focused on four key topics in lithium-ion battery recycling.  Information about the U.S. Department of Energy’s new Battery Recycling Prize will also be reviewed. 

Program Cost:

Registration for the Workshop on Lithium-Ion Battery Recycling is closed as the program has been over-subscribed.  Please consider attending future NAATBatt programs and workshops.
