World Insight: Alarm over pile up of worn electric vehicle batteries

The Chinese Ministry of Transport is expected to meet the 2020 goal of having 300,000 new electric vehicles by the end of this year, three years ahead of schedule. That may make the challenge of battery recycling even more daunting. A recent report said power battery waste in China could jump in the coming years, reaching 248,000 tons in 2020 alone, 20 times that of 2016.
