On the Agenda:
This webinar highlights the role of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and sustainability in driving innovation in the battery and electric vehicle industry. Experts will discuss how adopting circular economy principles and sustainable design can lead to a more circular transition to electromobility. The webinar will cover the environmental impacts of battery and vehicle production, usage, and end-of-life, emphasizing the importance of sustainable practices from the start. Opportunities to minimize these impacts through material selection, eco-design at all stages, recyclable battery design, and second-life applications will be explored. The webinar will also address the waste-to-resource aspect and the role of circularity in life cycle assessment, supporting European battery waste regulations. Participants will gain insights into fostering sustainability across the battery value chain and applying life cycle assessment in their organizations.
From LIBERTY Project Aitor Picatoste Iñurrieta from Mondragon Unibertsitatea will speak about “Circular economy and industrial sustainability”.
This webinar is an initiative of COLLABAT, a cluster of 4 projects (ALBATROSS, HELIOS, LIBERTY, MARBEL), all funded under the EU Horizon 2020 topic “Next generation and realisation of battery packs for BEV and PHEV” (LC-BAT-10-2020). This collaboration promotes important synergies to accelerate the development of this research and technological field towards a sustainable addition to European advanced manufacturing capabilities.
