Top 50 individuals with significant contributions to battery circularity in 2022
28 December 2022
by Eden Yates
As the year draws to a close, it’s important to recognise the individuals who have dedicated their time and energy to making battery circularity a reality in their respective fields. Their effort and dedication have made important strides in the development of
State-of-health and remaining-useful-life models. Both through software and hardware
Supply-chain business models and cross-industry partnerships
Industrialised recycling processes to recover high rates of Co, Ni and Li
Industrialised repurposing processes enabling MWh 2nd-life ESS, and using EV-batteries with <70% SOH
Passports to make way for full lifecycle traceability
In-depth market analytics on pricing, chemistries, technologies and timeline
Battery regulations pushing for battery data transparency and progressive rates for collection, repurposing and recycling
It is important to note that the progress towards battery circularity has been achieved through incremental improvements and a willingness to continuously learn and adapt. These efforts serve as a model for how we can approach sustainability challenges in other areas and drive progress towards a wider circular economy. By supporting these individuals and their work, we can all help drive the progress of a more sustainable future.
Thank you all for this year, we can’t wait to continue the journey toward our common goal of sustainability in 2023.
