Batteries 2019 will focus on battery market issues, future trends, and the battery recycling circular economy
With the ever exponentially growing battery market and the recent wake-up call for the preservation of the environment and the Earth’s natural resources, the world is now faced with two contradicting issues: the substantial increase in development of batteries and the consequent need of a rapidly decreasing raw material resources for their production.
From new environmental regulations and frameworks, research on new and efficient recycling procedures, to new innovative business models built around the circular economy; recycling and second-life have now become part of the main concerns of the battery industry.
The Circular Economy has become one of its main issues too.
The event will cover all aspects of the battery circular economy, beginning from the production of the battery through raw materials, battery manufacturing, battery use and safety, management and applications, going through market trends, research and development, new technologies and finally closing the loop with a focus recycling, second life and regulations.
International battery industry key players such as manufacturers, end users, experts, researchers and recyclers will come together to discuss and exchange on existing recycling technologies, life cycles, secondary raw material use, producer regulatory obligations in Europe, future expectations and innovations.
