Understanding the circular lithium-ion battery value chain
At Circular Energy Storage we are consistently researching the market for lithium-ion batteries with special emphasis on end-of-life.
We do this top-down by tracking the batteries that are being placed on the market; what cathode chemistry they have, for which applications they are made, and how they are used. Combined with data from refurbishers and recyclers we know how long these batteries will be in use and in what condition they normally are in when they reach end of life.
We also do this bottom-up by visiting and talking to energy storage companies, refurbishers, recyclers and material companies to verify volumes, recovery technologies and economics.
On top of that we follow everything that is published around the end-of-life area such as research papers, patents, new projects and media articles.
From 1st of August our main product is a subscription service covering volume, prices, market and R&D in the lithium-ion battery end-of-life market. You find more information about it here. We also still have our report The lithium-ion battery end-of-life market 2018-2025 for sale which is found here.
