New data, new subscription service for the lithium-ion battery end-of-life sector

A brand-new report from Circular Energy Storage will be launched 1 August and according to Hans Eric Melin, a member of the E-Waste World Conference & Expo 2019 Advisory Board, it will be better than ever before by going from annually to quarterly, covering volumes, prices, market and technology development. “It’s the essential tool for everybody involved in the management of the lithium-ion battery’s life-cycle,” Circular Energy Storage’s director, Melin, said.

The lithium-ion battery EOL market tracker provides access to extensive data within four key areas of the lithium-ion second life and recycling market: volumes, prices, market development and R&D.

Derived from the findings and data in the The lithium-ion battery end-of-life market report this more dynamic and hands-on set of reports and databases has now become its replacement.

The aim with the report is to improve all players’ ability to make educated decisions around both end-of-life strategies and the daily dealing with lithium-ion batteries after the life in their first application.

The report covers four areas:

Volume: This segment covers historic, current and estimated future volumes of batteries placed on the market (POM), batteries that reach end-of-life (EOL) and how much of this that goes to remanufacturing, second life and recycling. The data is segmented per major markets (EU, USA, China), application (EV, ESS, portable, etc) and battery chemistry (LFP, NCMxxx, NCA, LMO, LCO). Every quarter, it will comment on the latest events affecting both POM volumes and the availability of batteries for the different downstreams. The report includes access to data in Excel which can be used for customized graphs and tables.

Prices: This segment covers relevant price information for batteries and battery materials, the two important downstreams for second-life batteries and waste batteries. Updated quarterly, material values for different battery chemistries are published as well as comments about recycling and reuse prices in all key markets.

Market: This segment covers the players in the market, including new deals, acquisitions, investments and partnerships. Events are commented and put in context. The report also includes access to a database with recyclers, refurbishers and known second-life projects.

R&D: This segment is focused on new research and patents in the areas of collection, recycling and reuse of lithium-ion batteries. Just as in the market segment, the news stories are analyzed and put into context. The report includes access to extensive database with labelled links to research papers and patents.

E-Waste World Conference & Expo will take place from Thursday 14 November to Friday 15 November at the Kap Europa, Frankfurt Messe, Germany. To register for this highly focused, solutions-driven event, please click here. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, please email
