Navigant Research Report Shows Advanced Battery Recycling Benefits All Stakeholders

When advanced batteries are recycled in an economical and
environmentally friendly way, system owners especially can increase
profit margins and decrease their footprint

BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AdvancedBatteries–A new report from Navigant
examines key recycling methods and strategies for major
advanced battery technologies that are commercially available for
transportation and grid storage.

With growing demand for grid-scale and electric vehicle battery storage,
advanced battery stakeholders are increasingly concerned about
mitigating the life cycle impact of these systems. Efforts are underway
to better understand the recycling process and to lower the costs and
environmental impacts involved. Click

: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH,
recycling is an opportunity for advanced battery stakeholders to
integrate responsible, profitable business practices into their
go-to-market strategies.

“Early markets for advanced batteries opened around 2010, and now the
industry is seeing its first major wave of retired advanced battery
assets,” says Ian McClenny, research analyst with Navigant Research. “In
the past, advanced battery manufacturers, integrators, end users, and
even legacy battery recycling companies did not factor retirements into
their business models, but that is changing as they become more aware of
the opportunity to lower total cost of ownership, increase profits, and
reduce environmental impact.”

According to the report, recycling presents an opportunity for system
owners to increase profit margins and decrease their footprint, in
addition to providing benefits to other stakeholders. While second-life
use has been a viable option for some in the battery industry, the
economical and environmentally friendly recycling of advanced battery
systems would benefit all stakeholders.

The report, Novel
Recycling Strategies Expand the Value Proposition of Advanced Batteries
examines key recycling methods and strategies for major advanced battery
technologies that are commercially available for transportation and grid
storage. These methods are classified by their traditional
specifications, reported shortcomings, and future roadmap for
improvement. Navigant Research outlines the primary battery system
components for advanced batteries and how they should be considered when
recycling. The study also explores competing end-of-life strategies and
provides recommendations on incorporating recycling procedures in the
supply chain for governments, manufacturers, and business owners. An
