The study was commissioned by EUROBAT, representing Europe’s automotive battery industry; the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA); the automobile manufacturers’ associations of Japan (JAMA) and South Korea (KAMA); and the International Lead Association (ILA). Other processes convert the spent electrolyte into calcium sulphate (gypsum) or sodium sulphate (soda), which can be used for various applications such as building products or detergents.
