What needs to be considered in terms of the safety implications of recycling end-of-life electric vehicle batteries?
There is a looming reality that electric vehicles (EV) are coming. They are, in fact, ever more present on our roads and they will, inevitably, come to their end-of-life and therefore, be seen in our yards. We need to be ready for these vehicles, and a significant factor in understanding what to do with them when they do finally arrive is safety.
We got in touch with Ian Scott, an independent safety engineer who specialises in fire safety in the industrial infrastructure, who provided us with an in-depth report regarding what needs to be considered in terms of the safety implications of recycling end-of-life electric vehicle batteries.
