Advancing Circular Economies in Electronics – The Battery Challenge
Creating a true circular economy for electronic equipment relies on the ability to reuse or recycle all components in a given product. Batteries are a key component in and a key barrier to creating circularity in electronics. This issue is relevant not only for the traditional consumer electronics industry, but all industries that rely on power storage. In this webinar, we will look at why batteries of all sizes present a significant challenge to circularity and some of the efforts underway to mitigate their impact.
