Battery (Cell-) Production in Europe

EBA250 Virtual Meetup: Europe’s new battery regulation

Raw materials for batteries: Europe’s new battery regulation and implications for the European battery value chain
Tuesday 15 December 2020, 11:00 – 12:30 CET

 

The launch of the European Battery Alliance manifested Europe’s ambition to become a global leader in sustainable battery production and use, in the context of the circular economy. The new regulation on batteries and waste batteries that will be launched on December 09 supports this ambition with an extensive regulatory framework. The new EU regulatory framework will impact all parts of the battery value chain for the years to come. This webinar will give you the opportunity to receive first-hand knowledge of the proposal and listen reactions from the industry from different parts of the value chain.

Access to sustainable raw materials for batteries is paramount for a resilient European battery value chain. Lithium-ion is currently the main chemistry of choice for electro-mobility and will dominate the market in the coming years. Various raw materials are required in lithium-ion batteries including lithium, cobalt, nickel, manganese, graphite, silicon, copper and aluminium. The supply of some of these materials – in particular cobalt, natural graphite and lithium – is of concern in view of the large quantities needed and/or very concentrated supply sources. The sustainability of the extraction and exploitation of these resources is fundamental. In addition, recycling of materials will increasingly become important for diversifying the EU’s supply and should be encouraged in the context of the transition to a circular economy.

In this webinar we will address the implications of the new battery regulation on the European battery value chain and discuss how the proposed measures can help building a sustainable and circular value chain for batteries in Europe. We look forward to welcoming you online!
