Researchers explore the recyclability issue of leading battery

A new body of scholarship backed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) program through the U.S. National Academies, headed by Nikhil Gupta, member of NYU's Center for Cybersecurity, concentrates on the need to embrace a circular economy (or zero waste) paradigm for the leading batteries. “When one buys a new car battery, the old one must be returned for recycling — it's a requirement. Because the architecture of LA batteries has not changed substantially over the years, recyclers know how to do it quickly and efficiently,” said Gupta.
