Battery Directive update is another step towards a sustainable future!
The European Parliament has voted to revise regulations for cells and batteries, including the popular Li-ion cells. The new standards require a minimum recycled content of raw materials and the introduction of a Battery Passport and carbon footprint declarations for every battery on the market. The goal is to recover as many raw materials as possible to take care of the planet.
Good news for the environment – up to 73% of used batteries will be recoverable by 2030, and a target of 61% by 2031 has been set for small-size batteries.
