As more people use electric vehicles (EV), more batteries are needed, which can lead to more electronic waste. Battery circularity is a way to reuse and recycle batteries to reduce waste.

Finding the right business strategy can be challenging due to the wide variety of EV models, each requiring different battery chemistries and sizes. In our research, we have found key barriers and enablers, suitable business models, ecosystem strategies, and design guidelines for implementing battery circularity. We are also developing smart battery circularity, which uses digital technologies to collect and analyze data about batteries in real time.
This will help us make better decisions about how to reuse and recycle batteries. Our research will benefit the EV battery value chain actors by providing innovative business models, digital services, and performance monitoring. Given the electricity shortages and the need to use renewable sources, battery circularity is an attractive solution.
