Some of the critical conversations that this conference proceedings delves into are:

  1. The importance of reuse and recycling in the supply chain management of LIB raw materials for achieving self-sustainability.
  2. Gaps in standards, regulations, assessment mechanisms, testing, and certification in the reuse and recycling ecosystem.
  3. Challenges to reuse and recycling due to the heterogeneity of battery designs and chemistries.
  4. The role of the government and industry players in forging effective collaborations among stakeholders to ensure secure data sharing and battery management.
  5. Research and development requirements for improved efficiency and material purity during recycling.
