July 9-10, 2019
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.
$475 for Employees of NAATBatt Member Firms
$495 for Non-Members
