Battery manufacturing and recycling are vital for the electric vehicle industry, as they impact the performance, cost, and environmental impact of the vehicles. Manufacturing requires high-quality materials, advanced manufacturing processes, and strict quality control. This includes advanced cell designs and equipment for the assembly of the battery pack. Recycling, or second-life proposals, is the process of recovering valuable materials from used batteries, reducing the environmental impact and cost of electric vehicles. The recycling process can recover materials such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, aluminum and copper. Both manufacturing and recycling are crucial for the success of the electric vehicle industry and a comprehensive approach is needed to ensure its sustainable growth.
