NORWAY: from batteries to recycling material.

This subproject studies how the processes through which lithium-ion batteries are being transformed into recycled material are currently acting upon markets and fostering scientific experimentation in Norway, which set world records for electric vehicle adoption and low emission averages in September 2018. The project asks how the existing tensions between the expansive market of electric vehicles and the lack of technology for battery recycling is taking place in the ecologies of practice involving lithium-ion battery recyclers, electric vehicle users, energy policy makers, and electric vehicle companies.
