More than 1 million electric vehicles (EVs) are now driving on U.S. roads. What will happen when those cars go out of service? Without recycling, their batteries would become 8 million tons of global scrap by 2040.

We need to make battery recycling cost effective.

Scientists have taken another step towards that goal at the Department of Energy’s ReCell Center — the nation’s first advanced battery recycling research and development center, headquartered at Argonne National Laboratory.

In this webinar, materials scientists Jessica Durham and Albert Lipson will describe their breakthrough: How to recover, separate and regenerate the cathode material, a battery’s positively charged electrode, at scale. Once complete, the processes will help pave the way for the large-scale recycling of EVs.

Join Durham, Lipson and moderator John Harvey, business development executive at Argonne, as they describe the challenges of recycling batteries and the steps needed to overcome them.
