The circular economy in the energy transition, the example of batteries: from the mine to recycling


Circular economy of raw materials in Energy Transition. Energy transition is quickly increasing the need for raw materials. For instance, in IEA scenario, the lithium demand will increase by a factor of 10 to 40 and cobalt by x5 to x20 in the next two decades. To secure a sustainable supply of these materials, Europe is promoting a circular economy approach, which includes responsible mining and improved recycling. In this session, we will particularly illustrate how battery value chain is developing circular economy, from mining to recycling.
