Recovering battery materials is critical to making new batteries and can be produced at a lower carbon footprint than mined materials. Battery producers can build viable circular eco-systems to harness the manufacturing scrap to build new cells.

Re-processing scrap from the scale up of UK gigafactories could generate up to 20,000 tonnes of cathode active materials that can be reused, capable of making 7GWh of new batteries, equivalent to 100,000 cars.

By 2040 recycled battery waste from end-of-life vehicles could supply enough cathode materials to produce 60GWh of new batteries.

Batteries of the future need large quantities of Nickel, Lithium and other materials to supply the growing EV market. We have compared the EU Battery Regulation targets versus the potential supply.
