APEC 2023 Keynote: Recycling, Refining, and Remanufacturing Battery Materials - Patrick Chapman
The supply of lithium-ion batteries is limiting the adoption of electric vehicles and stationary storage. This battery supply, in turn, is limited by the availability of critical materials for both anode and cathode components. Dr. Chapman will discuss how these battery-grade materials can be manufactured from recycled batteries and how this promotes a circular supply chain, thereby reducing their cost and environmental footprint. He will also discuss the challenges for power electronics technology with respect to battery materials recycling, refining, and remanufacturing.
