International Automobile Recycling Congress (IARC) & International Congress for Battery Recycling (ICBR) Events 2020

TES’ experts in battery recycling will be joining the ICM this autumn to share their specialist knowledge on lithium-ion battery recycling.

The use of Lithium-Ion batteries is increasing driven by the wide variety of devices that we now consume. From information communications (ICT) devices (such as smartphones, and laptops) through to electric vehicles, it's an upward trend that doesn't look likely to change. 

However, Lithium-Ion battery packs contain  a number of  valuable metals and materials. Many of them are a finite resource and  aren't  environmentally friendly to extract or to dispose of when handled incorrectly.   

TES' expert staff will be on hand to share expert knowledge, on how circular solutions are already being delivered across the battery life cycle. This includes the issues arising from electric vehicle (EV) battery recycling and smartphone and laptop recycling.  

The components from within lithium-ion batteries can be used in the forward manufacturing supply chain. However, this requires expert management of the many legislations across geographical and legal territories. Accessing compliant recycling infrastructure requires a global partner, with subject matter experts in reverse logistics.
