The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that the automotive battery capacity for repurposing “will grow by 560% by 2030”. This in effect has presented serious challenges towards waste management, where the concerns of manufacturing and disposal processes need to be addressed. At Aceleron, we offer solutions to tackle these challenges; our batteries are designed with serviceability and upgradeability in mind, to not only help reduce the emissions impact but also decrease landfill waste.  

This feature is a prime highlight for us, as Aceleron aim to meet the climate change goal set by International Energy Agency (IEA), where “global EV stock will need to grow by 36% a year, reaching 245 million vehicles in 2030”. We believe that “creating batteries that are easier to disassemble will encourage reuse and support a circular ecosystem”. Our CTO, Carlton Cummings expands on this and explains how the reliable and serviceable solution can create “additional storage capacity, as batteries could be repurposed to help store electricity at EV charging points.”   

Our unique battery technology supports the Circular Economy model. However, this is only one piece of the sustainability puzzle; there are many other aspects that should be taken into consideration for eco-friendly technology to be achieved. The Circular Economy is beginning to grow and has the ability to end the throwaway linear culture, but it requires not only companies to start utilising these types of business models but a change in consumers buying habits to prioritise sustainable products.
