To boost the green transition, the availability of critical raw materials needs to be ensured. The battery sector has been experiencing increasing demand for raw materials for years and is vulnerable for supply risks. Various strategies are being pursued to meet the growing demand for critical raw materials and to build up viable, sustainable and innovative value chains. Waste valorization by recovery and recycling plays a central role.
