Event Description

Register today for a webinar Tuesday, April 30, at 9:00 a.m. ET / 3:00 p.m. CEST, on the potential and problems of lithium and cobalt recycling.

Extracting cobalt and lithium from old products and infrastructure is essential to heading off predicted metal shortfalls, empowering clean energy transitions and reducing risk of human exploitation. Despite these benefits, lithium and cobalt recycling rates are low.

Interest in renewable technologies (such as electric vehicles, solar panels and wind turbines) has increased demand for cobalt and lithium. However, global supplies of both minerals are not projected to meet demand, with research forecasting shortfalls in the coming decade.

Recycling conducted in a responsible and transparent way could help head off these shortfalls while reducing pressure on mining communities vulnerable to exploitation. 

Clare Church, Research Officer, IISD, and Laurin Wuennenberg, Researcher - Innovation, IISD, will explore the benefits and barriers to cobalt and lithium recycling in our webinar.

This webinar is hosted by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), the Secretariat to the IGF. 

Register today.

I am very interested in this topic but it will be 11PM in Melbourne. Will the webinar be recorded?
