The 10 projects funded through the FOA-0002680: Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Electric Drive Vehicle Battery Recycling and Second Life Applications will lead to second-use scale-up demonstrations that integrate end-of-life EV batteries into secondary applications. This includes stationary energy storage systems and projects that focus on advanced materials separation, scale-up, and reintegration of lithium-ion battery materials. Responsible and sustainable end-of-life recycling and reuse will strengthen domestic battery manufacturing and allow the nation to meet the increasing demand for EVs through American made battery components. Objectives for projects included in this funding opportunity align with provisions in the President’s Inflation Reduction Act, and Defense Production Act to reduce the nation’s dependence on foreign materials, supercharge domestic manufacturing and create good-paying clean energy jobs. Leveraged with recipient cost share, this funding will help to provide more than $126 million for America’s clean energy future.
