What needs to be done

Indonesia should draft new regulations on controlling old electric vehicle batteries.

Automotive expert Lluc Canals and colleagues at the School of Industrial, Aerospace, and Audiovisual Engineering of Terrassa conducted a study on old EV batteries. The study found that recycling old battery for battery charging stations can provide environmental and economic benefits. The same benefits can also be obtained through the conversion of used vehicle batteries to power storage for solar power plants.

Besides, Indonesia should look into the possibility of collaborating with foreign investors to recycle lithium batteries into raw materials. Without adequate processing steps, used electric vehicle batteries may be sold abroad or wasted.

The government should find ways to deal with old EV batteries and keep them out of landfills. Manufacturing companies selling electric vehicles and relevant authorities should be able to manage used EV batteries.
