Researchers recommend reusing old lithium-ion EV batteries to store energy before recycling them.

Engineers research recycling and reusing lithium-ion batteries to optimize design for old vehicles

Researchers at Cornell University recently published a study that outlines ways to sustainably repurpose used lithium-ion electric vehicle batteries to reduce their carbon footprint. The researchers investigated how battery chemistry, reuse, and recycling influence lithium-ion EV batteries’ energy output and environmental impact. Cornell University is a NYSERNet member.
