White paper on Circular Economy Shaping the Future of Lithium-Ion Batteries

Using an innovative modelling and investigative approach that uniquely combines Systems Dynamic (SD) modelling and prospective LCA (pLCA), this white paper forecasts the environmental and supply chain benefits of circular economy interventions for the lithium-ion battery (LIB) market, using the UK as a case study. This unique approach provides a best-in-class analysis of the UK's potential to lead in circularity within the battery sector, offering a roadmap for policymakers, industry stakeholders, and researchers.

Nature Reviews Paper – LCA & Geometallurgy

In the transition to a low-carbon economy, the materials powering our innovative solutions are of paramount importance. Yet, producing these materials carries environmental costs that are not always immediately obvious. A comprehensive review published in Nature Reviews Earth & Environment titled "Towards sustainable extraction of technology materials through integrated approaches" by Robert Pell, Laurens Tijsseling, and their esteemed colleagues, sheds light on the environmental impacts of the raw materials essential for this green transition.

life cycle assessment

What is Life Cycle Assessment? (LCA)

By definition, life cycle assessment (LCA) is a scientific methodology to assess global environmental impacts associated with the life cycle of a product or process. Beyond this generic definition, here at Minviro we see LCA as a comprehensive and reliable tool that enables environmentally informed decision-making throughout all stages of a project’s or product’s life.
