BATT4EU is organizing a deep-dive into specific SRIA themes, embarking in an in-depth exploration of the value chain, starting with raw materials and recycling, on 22 May 2024, 10:00 – 11:30 CET.

This webinar will cover the pivotal strategies Europe must adopt to fortify its battery raw materials supply chain, and the role of R&I to achieve this goal. To ensure the security of raw materials supply chain for batteries, it is important to adopt strategic actions that encompass not only procurement and sustainability but also emphasize the importance of innovation and circularity!

Horizon Europe projects are crucial in providing the support industrial players need to bring their initiatives to fruition. By embedding circularity at the core of project agendas, we can ensure a more sustainable approach that leverages recycling as a key component in securing the supply chain.

Questions linger on whether legislative measures like the Critical Raw Materials Act and the Battery Regulation are sufficient to guarantee autonomy and circularity in raw materials. It’s evident that there’s a knowledge gap that needs addressing, one that collaborative research can effectively fill, ensuring not just the achievement of raw materials autonomy but also the incorporation of circular practices throughout the lifecycle of batteries.

Our speakers include representatives of research, industry, associations and European Policy, who will provide their unique perspectives on the importance of taking meaningful action to support Europe’s raw material security, through supporting innovation and circularity.
