Redefining the 'end-of-life' of retired electric vehicle batteries

Redefining the 'end-of-life' of retired electric vehicle batteries

Consumer batteries such as those used in power tools, mobile phones and laptops are normally recycled/disposed after their service life - that's what we normally refer to as the 'end-of-life' of the batteries. However, retired car batteries that are no longer suitable for electric cars could still hold sufficient capacity for second life applications. The 'end-of-life' of an electric car battery needs to be redefined as they could be further used, for example, for another 10 years or even longer in various post-vehicle applications before they are finally recycled/disposed.

Smart Cities Massively Exceeding Expectation

Smart Cities Massively Exceeding Expectation

The term smart city originally meant little beyond using much more information technology IT. However, new IDTechEx report, "Smart City Opportunities: Infrastructure, Systems, Materials 2019-2029" reveals that much more dramatic changes are both required and possible and humans will be in the driving seat.

Monsanto case reaffirms that robotics is the future of agrochemicals

Monsanto case reaffirms that robotics is the future of agrochemicals

Last week a US court held Monsanto's glyphosate responsible for causing cancer in a ground keeper, awarding $289M of damages. You might wonder what the link between this verdict and agricultural robotics is? The answer is everything.

Lead acid battery alternatives set to become big business

Lead acid battery alternatives set to become big business

Cleantech Hub reports that a mere 13% of lead acid batteries are recycled in Nigeria. Yet there is a mini-grid revolution about to take off in Nigeria, such as the World Bank and the Rural Electrification Agency $350 million project as well as other investments into the sector, driving more batteries.
