Circular Economy and
The platform provides a comprehensive understanding about the fate of lithium and all materials connected to it from rock to recycling. Its goal is to minimize the lithium losses and maximize the resource efficiency from a circular economy point of view and adopting a life cycle thinking approach.

E-mobility cost study (ECOS)
ECOS defines the real cost of e-mobility regarding the effects of environmental, monetary and social aspects on overall footprint of e-mobility with special focus on ion lithium batteries. A literature analysis evaluates the existing information along the whole value chain. Key issues are life cycle assessment, business models and responsible sourcing. An additional survey examines how important responsibly produced raw materials, electric engines and batteries are to different actors in the e-mobility value chain.
