Improving the circularity of e-bus batteries

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH commissioned the development of a measures catalogue for inclusion of circular economy principles into e-bus planning and procurement. In this vein, a series of three workshops were organized in Bogotá, Dar es Salam and New Delhi with the core aim of presenting the developed measures. The article is the result of three study tours organized parallel to the workshops and presents short summaries on the status regarding the e-mobility targets, regulatory frameworks, and current capacities for end-of-life (EoL) management of Lithium-Ion batteries.
