The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI), Wuppertal Institute and Urban Pathway have developed three factsheet papers on lithium-ion batteries identifying synergies between e-waste, electric mobility and energy. The factsheets cover the four segments of the end-of-life management of electric vehicle batteries: initial battery design, re-purposing in energy storage systems, refurbishing, and recycling. A workshop will be organised on the 14th October. It will be the opportunity to launch the papers and discuss this critical topic. UN-Habitat and UEMI will briefly present the content of the factsheets; stakeholders will then present their activities in the four segments of batteries end-of-life management, finally giving participants the opportunity to exchange, ask questions and give feedback on their experience on the ground.
