EVs, Batteries & Circular Economy

EV batteries are becoming crucially important for the circular economy. Here you can find more information on critical minerals traceability, and battery passports that enable transparent battery supply chains.
The Open Battery Passport

What is the Battery Passport?

Episode 5 of Minespider’s Explainer videos is about the Battery Passport. Pavlina Sapasovska explains the concept of Battery Passports, their purpose, and what information they should contain, as well as the cost. In this episode you will also learn which companies have to implement Battery Passports and when this requirement comes into effect. Pavlina also introduces the Open Battery Passport by Minespider, the first fully compliant and blockchain-based solution that revolutionizes the way battery information is managed.

Inflation Reduction Act key facts

What is the US Inflation Reduction Act?

In the third explainer video we discuss the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and its significance for the EV battery market. The IRA provides tax credits for "clean vehicles" that use domestically sourced battery materials, aiming to promote green energy and strengthen US energy independence. We explore the concept of clean vehicles, the incentives for their adoption, and the key differences between the IRA and the EU Battery Regulation.

EU Battery Regulation Proposal

Charging up for the new EU Battery Regulation Proposal

On the 10th of December 2020, the European Commission published the EU Battery Regulation Proposal. This proposal aims to substitute and build on the current EU Battery Directive (2006/66/EC) by incorporating the latest developments in the battery industry, with a special focus on sustainability, quality, and circularity. In this article, we provide key insights on how this proposal differs from the current directive and some of the main requirements for economic operators in this area.
