Electric Vehicles, EV batteries & Critical Raw Materials

Over the past years, we have been helping our clients in finding solutions for the collection, reuse and recycling for Electric Vehicle traction batteries. If you are a producer, end-user or recycler of large li-ion based Industrial Batteries, we can help you for instance in the following areas:

  • Producer Responsibility for EV traction batteries and other large industrial Li-ion batteries (LIB)
  • Regulatory requirements  (e.g. forthcoming revision of the EU Battery Directive) and safety guidelines (ADR regulations) related to the packaging, transportation, disassembly, reuse and recycling of large Li-ion batteries
  • Best available technologies (BAT) and leading service providers for the recycling of large Li-ion batteries (LIB), and for the recovery of valuable and hazardous raw materials in End-of-Life (EoL) Li-ion and NiMh industrial batteries
  • Modelling the future development of Electric Vehicle (EV) markets in Finland, and identifying the implications on the battery recycling and critical raw materials markets.

In addition, we are following closely the latest developments in the field of Critical Raw Materials (CRM). For several years we have been working closely with the National Emergency Supply Agency (NESA) of Finland in the field of critical minerals, metals and chemicals.
