The course aims to provide an understanding of how lithium-ion batteries are manufactured. It also highlights how batteries that no longer work in vehicles can be reused for e.g. energy storage, and how fully used batteries can be recycled. The course ends with a case study in the form of a life cycle analysis of a lithium-ion battery.
