In observance of International E-Waste Day on 14th October 2020, the Urban Pathways project together with the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative organised the Webinar:
Lithium-ion EV battery: e-waste, electric mobility and energy nexus
During the webinar four factsheets on lithium-ion batteries identifying synergies between e-waste, electric mobility and energy will be presented. The factsheets cover the four segments of the end-of-life management of electric vehicle batteries: initial battery design, re-purposing in energy storage systems, refurbishing, and recycling. This workshop will be the opportunity to launch the papers and discuss this critical topic. UN-Habitat and UEMI will briefly present the content of the factsheets; stakeholders will then present their activities in the four segments of batteries end-of-life management, finally giving participants the opportunity to exchange, ask questions and give feedback on their experience on the ground.
