What is BatteReverse?
BatteReverse is a research & innovation project funded by the European Commission’s Horizon Europe programme, that aims to build the next generation of battery reverse logistics.
What is Reverse Logistics?
Reverse logistics (RL) refers to the process of transferring goods from their final destination back to the point of origin, with the aim to recover their value or reduce waste. In the case of electric vehicle batteries, reverse logistics begins when the battery no longer meets the needs of the EV user, due to manufacturing defects, accidents or natural degradation. The process involves various steps, including battery assessment, packaging, transportation, dismantling and sorting, before the battery is utilised in a way that extracts its remaining value, through circularity practices such as refurbishment, repurposing, or recycling.
A streamlined process for 2nd life battery applications
Advancing the State of the Art
We’re developing the technologies, processes and partnerships necessary to build a reverse logistics value chain
Enhancing efficiency and safety
We will reduce the time and risks related to the assessment, transportation, and dismantling of EV batteries
The feasibility of our next-generation RL process will be proven through pilots with key European industrial partners
Empowering the Circular Economy
Our innovations will grow circularity businesses across the EU and help reduce the use of primary critical raw materials
Discover the growing circular battery value chain across Europe
The network of stakeholders in the reverse logistics of batteries comprises major companies, research groups, NGOs, industrial associations, and many more. Explore our stakeholder map, insights, and business cases to discover and learn about the different actors within the RL chain.
