The BMW Group, Northvolt and Umicore have formed a joint technology consortium in order to work closely together on the continued development of a complete and sustainable value chain for battery cells for electrified vehicles in Europe.

The chief objective is to make battery cells sustainable by establishing a closed life-cycle loop. This starts with a recyclable cell design and continues with a manufacturing process that mostly uses renewable energy. The next step is a long period of primary use as a drive battery, possibly followed by another phase of secondary use as a stationary energy storage device. At the end of its life cycle, the cell is recycled and the raw materials reused, thereby completing the loop.

The project is seeking to press ahead with the sustainable industrialization of battery cells in Europe and the associated acquisition of skills, from cell chemistry and development through to production and ultimately recycling.
