Batteries are now at the center of geopolitical competition. Lithium extraction and processing is not going to meet forecasted demand. All the mineral components of batteries have environmental impacts, especially cobalt and graphite. It’s against this backdrop that commodity traders are investing in battery recycling. Can and how are batteries recycled? What are the technical, regulatory  and market challenges to unlocking the vast resources trapped within used batteries. Who is leading the race? Our guests are William Bergh and Eden Yates of Cling Systems. A start-up focused on creating the trading platform for the repurposing and recycling of batteries and their components.
