Electric cars are entering into the automotive market. However, their prices are still expensive mostly due to the battery cost. Additionally, electric vehicle batteries are considered not useful for traction purposes after they have lost a 20% of its capacity. Having still an 80% of its capacity, these batteries may work on stationary applications with lower requirements than electric mobility. In order to recover part of the battery costs came out the idea of giving batteries a second life…

End of Electric Vehicle Batteries: Reuse vs. Recycle

It was found that there are several commercially used recycling processes and also some are under research to regain maximum possible materials and quantity and that reusing the battery is a good option as it would give some time to recycling companies to develop cost and energy-efficient methods.

A Comprehensive Review on Second-Life Batteries: Current State, Manufacturing Considerations, Applications, Impacts, Barriers & Potential Solutions, Business Strategies, and Policies
