Participants can expect four in-depth conference tracks: Battery Recycling; Circular Electronics, Remanufacturing, & ITAD; E-Waste and WEE Recycling and Metal & Critical Raw Material Recycling; With track two, Circular Electronics, Manufacturing & ITAD, specially developed in partnership with Sustainable Electronics Recycling (SERI) – recognised for championing electronics sustainability.
To ensure that the conference offers the latest information and insight, it is developed with input from an expert advisory board made up of esteemed specialists: Nils Steinbrecher, Managing Director, TES; Dr Christian Hagelüken, Director, EU Government Affairs Umicore; Julie-Ann Adams, Chief Executive Officer of the European Electronics Recyclers Association (EERA); and Corey Dehmey, Executive Director of SERI.
With the rapid growth of EVs and other battery-powered devices, there is growing concern about what to do with end-of-life batteries. Currently, only a small fraction is being recycled, and most end up in landfills or are shipped overseas for processing. Recycled batteries have the potential to make up a much larger percentage of the supply chain in the future.
Battery recycling can help businesses prevent waste from ending up in landfills, reduce their carbon footprint, and conserve natural resources. In addition, recycling can recover valuable materials such as lithium, cobalt, nickel, and other metals that can be used to produce new batteries and secure supply chains.
Registration for Battery Recycling is now live. Entry to all three exhibition areas is completely free to attend. A 2-day Conference Pass will be priced at €1,495 for visitors who register before the Early Bird price concludes on 19th of May.
