EV Battery Reuse and Recycling Advisory Group

TCEQ formed this advisory group to provide guidance and recommendations for reusing or recycling electric vehicle batteries in Texas.

About the Advisory Group

Reusing and recycling electric vehicle batteries has the potential to create new industries and jobs in Texas, lower transportation emissions, provide storage capacity for the electrical grid, and recycle materials for high-tech industries. TCEQ is looking to this advisory group to suggest best practices and policies, provide guidance, and make recommendations to encourage the reuse, recovery, and recycling of lithium-ion and other propulsion batteries used in electric vehicles. The advisory group would examine:

  • Methods to collect and reuse or recycle 100% (or as close as possible) of electric vehicle batteries in Texas at their end-of-life in an environmentally safe and cost-effective manner.
  • Ways to reuse electric vehicle batteries as possible energy storage systems.
  • Best options for recycling electric vehicle batteries.
  • Best practices to reuse recycled precious metals or other materials as feedstock for new batteries or other products.
