Today, Aceleron was awarded Best Circular Economy in a competition being run by Vinci and Total. Both Vinci and Total recognised the value of our operations in Kenya where we are working in partnership with the WEEE Centre to repurpose batteries from no longer functioning packs to create packs which are price competitive with lead acid batteries. Special mention to Joseph Mungai who manages the operations in Kenya and Laura Allerston who pitched for the award.
The prize money from the award will go towards expanding our operations in the region to increase the circularity of the battery supply chains there.
Adapting EV batteries to be repurposed would encourage reuse and support a circular ecosystem – including creating additional storage capacity to support an influx of EVs and charge points on the grid. Carlton Cummins, Co-Founder, discusses with James Cook for The Telegraph.
