Sustainable Supply Chains & End of Life

July 27, 2021 at 1:00 pm EDT

One of the top motivations for fleets to switch to electric trucks is sustainability, yet questions remain regarding the sustainability of component supply chains — particularly batteries. Join NACFE and industry experts to learn more about what is being done to ensure responsible sourcing and disposal of electric truck components.

In this training, participants will learn:

How can the industry ensure battery components such as lithium, nickel, manganese, and cobalt are sourced responsibly?Full fuel cycle GHG-reduction benefits of SAF per current and future production pathways

What options exist for battery reuse once the battery is no longer able to be used on the truck?

How can fleets ensure safe and responsible recycling of battery components at end of life?
