Recycling strategic metals from used batteries

Having grown rapidly for nearly 20 years, the electric mobility industry is a practical alternative to our dependence on fossil energies. But for this soution to be truly sustainable, it must be implemented without tapping natural resources. At Veolia, our Resourcers have found solutions for recycling used batteries from electric vehicles. At the Cedilor and Euro Dieuze Industrie sites, Fatima and her colleagues extract strategic metals from these used batteries so they can be reused to make new ones. Making the electric car truly sustainable!
