A new report is published by the European Environmental Bureau:Removable, replaceable and repairable batteries.  HOW TO IMPROVE THE CIRCULARITY OF RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES IN CONSUMER ELECTRONICS AND LIGHT ELECTRIC VEHICLES.

. EERA supported the joint statement together with many organisations, which represents around 500 companies, social economy actors and NGOs who support a more circular economy for batteries:

Europe’s circular economy leaders demand removable, replaceable, and repairable batteries:  Actors already building a circular economy for batteries in Europe, i.e., repairers, refurbishers and recyclers, alongside environmental NGOs, call on the European Commission, Parliament and Council to adopt ambitious requirements in the Battery Regulation to enable battery removal, replacement and repair for consumer electronics and LEVs. Removable, replaceable, and repairable batteries are an essential element of the battery regulation in order to support value retention and circularity, reduce EU dependency on critical raw materials, reduce e-waste and unnecessary consumption, as well as supporting worker safety and fire prevention.
