Can electric car batteries be recycled? Just like a mobile phone, EVs have lithium-ion batteries that can store energy and recharge once it’s spent. The problems arise when those batteries become so used that they can no longer provide an adequate range for EVs. The big, heavy batteries present a clear danger to the environment, so recycling has become a popular goal in the industry. At the same time, recycling batteries is not cheap, efficient, nor quick. That will change in time, but for now, there’s work to do.
