ICBR 2020 - 25th International Congress for Battery Recycling

Event Date: 
Wednesday, 16 September, 2020 to Friday, 18 September, 2020

ICBR 2020 is the international platform for reviewing the challenges faced by the Battery Recycling Industry on a global basis. For the 25th consecutive year ICBR will bring together the international community of experts and decision makers of the entire Battery Recycling value chain, including battery recyclers and producers, collection organizations, OEM’s, policymakers, materials and services providers and many more.

For its 25th anniversary, in response to requests from delegates, the programme of the ICBR 2020 will particularly focus on Battery Recycling Technologies. Indeed by 2020, the primary and the rechargeable battery industry will face the review of the Batteries Directive. Simultaneously, many new EV batteries will be introduced on the EV market as car manufacturers will have to meet stringent CO2 emissions targets.

The conference will offer participants business opportunities through networking and communication on Battery Recycling including the latest processes under development and industrial processes. Plenary sessions will be complemented by many side events such as round tables, exhibitions, posters presentations in order to open the conference to innovative issues, processes and technologies.

The following topics will be covered:
 

Innovation in Emerging Battery Recycling Technologies on a Global Basis

  • Horizon 2030: disruptive approaches leading to innovation in battery recycling
  • Best available recycling technologies for portable and industrial batteries
  • Electrode materials recovery versus secondary raw materials production
