Volkswagen EV Battery Recycling Plant and Breakdown Process Video
Last month, we at Elgin Volkswagen wrote about how our favorite automaker is using a really cool newly developed method for disposing of EV batteries. Not only are we excited by this innovative procedure, but we’re delighted at the way in which it addresses the growing concern of how to handle EV batteries at the end of their lives, as well as how to reliably obtain the precious minerals needed to build them.
To follow up, we wanted to share this intriguing video of both the new EV recycling plant that Volkswagen has built, as well as footage of the battery itself being ground down and recycled. It’s one thing to read about it; it’s another to see this process in action. Enjoy!
