End-of-Life Batteries from Electrified Vehicles
On June 12th and 13th, Eucobat, the European association of national collection schemes for batteries, organizes a free conference dedicated to end-of-life batteries from electrified vehicles (electrical and hybrid vehicles).
This conference will take place in the center of the electrified vehicles in Europe - Norway - and is aimed at the professionals, experts and authorities in this domain. The event will be hosted in the Scandic City Hotel in Fredrikstad.
Experts from battery and car industry, collectors, recyclers and collection schemes will share their vision on market evolution, collection, transport, reuse and second use, recycling and financing, in order to start up an interactive and fruitful discussion. We will also witness the re-use of EV batteries in action in a commercial scale in the Batteriretur sorting facility.
