Resource Revolution: Circular Economy Closes the Loop on Batteries, Ends Mining’s Grip!

In an era where sustainability is at the forefront of technological and environmental discussions, how can the principles of a circular economy revolutionize our methods of resource utilization, particularly in the lifecycle management of batteries?

Veronika Wright, also known as Electrified Veronika™, emerges as the advocate for this transformative approach, passionately arguing for the cyclical use of batteries—from powering electric vehicles in their prime to serving less demanding roles in stationary energy storage systems, before being recycled to reclaim valuable raw materials.

“So circular economy can work and can really lead to a point where we don’t have to mine raw materials anymore. So it really should be this closed-loop aspect,” Wright said.
