The green benefits of EV batteries diminish as soon as they reach end-of-life. They would end up in landfills and possibly emit toxins and heavy metals from their cylindrical cells. 2 They did not pose a potential problem at first, but with the growing industry of Lithium-ion battery production due to electric vehicles, they have found to be an emerging crisis in the future. What is the afterlife of these batteries and what can be done to manage this rising problem?
