What do you do with those EV batteries?
Recycle them of course!
I really must go back to the Citroen garage I was at recently where the salesman told me you can’t dispose of the batteries… He needs correcting!
Julian Bond says
What happens now about recycling smaller scale lithium batteries? Like laptop, power tools, electric bicycles.
In the UK we’ve got well developed processes for car lead-acid and household NIMH batteries. I’m not sure we know how to deal with LiOn at all, at all.
Alan Stainer says
Julian Bond there are companies that will take your batteries and recycle them for you. That costs money though. A good place to start would be to ask someone at your local council tip. I think I saw a bucket or something for laptop batteries the last time I visited my local one.
