Circular electric vehicle battery supply chains and their performance
Other conference contribution, 2022

This study explores how different circular electric vehicle (EV) battery supply chain setups affect performance in terms of economy, environmental impact, logistical efficiency, and full lifecycle battery performance. Through a systematic literature review combined with empirical data from semi-structured interviews and a workshop, it is made evident that a dichotomy of two major trends is emerging and that the implications these have on performance are not well-understood. The massive growth expected in the EV market makes this a pressing issue which requires further study. This paper contributes with an empirically grounded discussion about the current developments and research gaps in this area.
