Running for three years, RECOVAS is a ground-breaking project which is part funded by the Government’s Advanced Propulsion Centre. The partnership brings together manufacturers, recyclers, and academia to improve the potential to remanufacture, reuse or recycle EV batteries.
The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) accelerates the industrialisation of technologies which will help to realise net-zero emission vehicles. It is at the heart of the UK government’s commitment to end the country’s contribution to global warming by 2050.
Since its foundation in 2013, APC has funded over 113 low-carbon projects, involving more than 290 partners. The technologies developed in these projects are projected to save over 225 million tonnes of CO2, the equivalent of removing the lifetime emissions from 8.8 million cars.
