BMW aims for end-to-end sustainable battery cycle

August 10, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

BMW is developing a sustainable material cycle for lithium-ion battery cells in a bid to “optimise quality, performance and costs”.

The firm is constructing a pilot plant near Munich to help in its aim to “penetrate all aspects of the battery cell value chain”, from material selection to development to production and recycling.

The €110m project will “test new technology systems and innovative production processes” to increase battery cells’ capabilities and demonstrate large-scale manufacturability. The plant is set to open in late 2022.
