Webinar: Advancing Circular Economies in Electronics - The Battery Challenge
Sustainable Materials Management Webinar Series: A Partnership of the National Recycling Coalition & Pennsylvania Recycling Markets Center
When: Tuesday, January 21, 2020 10:30am - 11:45am PST
Where: On your computer, in the comfort of your office.
Creating a true circular economy for electronic equipment relies on the ability to reuse or recycle all components in a given product. Batteries are a key component in and a key barrier to creating circularity in electronics. This issue is relevant not only for the traditional consumer electronics industry, but all industries that rely on power storage. In this webinar, we will look at why batteries of all sizes present a significant challenge to circularity and some of the efforts underway to mitigate their impact.
