The dark side of the electric vehicles – Hans Eric Melin interviewed in Sweden's leading business monthly
In Veckans Affärer, Sweden's leading business monthly, Creation Inn's Hans Eric Melin comments on which social and environmental problems we face with an increasing number of EV's on the market. Currently the biggest problem is the situation in DRC with artisanal mining were people, including children, are working under terrible conditions. Although measures are taken it's hard for OEM's to verify from where the material is coming and in a country with the worlds highest rate of corruption not much points to an end.
Recycling on the other hand is working much better than what many believe. However it is not taking place in Europe or North America but in Asia.
