Batteries: What happens after we use them? About the toxicity of li-ion and prospects of recycling or second-use

Valuable materials are dumped on landfills where they obviously bring no good to anyone, especially not the environment.
Show Notes

Now that we know, that the lifetime of an EV battery is limited such that it has to be replaced at least once throughout the vehicle usage, if not more often, it is time to address the consequences of the massive lithium-ion battery waste that comes along with electric vehicles.
