Lithium-ion battery collection to be launched in Japan

Lithium BatteryAccording to the Jiji Press, a project to collect lithium-ion batteries from old electric vehicles will be launched in Japan in October through the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association.

The plan was unveiled at the meeting of entities including the Economy, Trade and Industry Ministry. 

As the popularity of EVs is expected to increase, vehicle manufacturers aim to work together to reduce costs for battery collection and create an effective recycling system for used batteries.

The project will be carried out through Japan Auto Recycling Partnership, a Tokyo-based organisation which is set up by the automotive industry. 

Automakers will pay outsourcing fees to the organisation. 

The project will be open for participation to imported automobile sellers and electric vehicle startups. 

Recycling facilities will be set up initially in seven prefectures — Hokkaido, Akita, Ibaraki, Aichi, Okayama, Hiroshima and Yamaguchi. More facilities will be established later.
