Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular! 

Rapid growth of the elec­tric vehi­cle mar­ket is imper­a­tive to meet glob­al green­house gas emis­sion reduc­tion tar­gets, improve air qual­i­ty in urban cen­ters, and meet con­sumer needs.

How­ev­er, the grow­ing num­ber of elec­tric vehi­cles pos­es a major chal­lenge in terms of using lim­it­ed resources and end-of-life waste dis­pos­al. And yet: Waste bat­ter­ies rep­re­sent an oppor­tu­ni­ty, man­u­fac­tur­ers need access to strate­gic ele­ments and crit­i­cal mate­ri­als for key com­po­nents in the pro­duc­tion of elec­tric vehi­cles: Recy­cled lithi­um-ion bat­ter­ies are a valu­able source of mate­ri­als. — REELEMENTS gen­er­ates them and rein­tro­duces them back into circulation.
