Management of End-of-life Li-ion Batteries through E-waste Compensation in Nigeria
Feasibility study on options for developing environmentally sound recycling solutions in Nigeria
The study addresses the possibilities for responsible management of end-of-life lithium-ion batteries from domestic consumption in Nigeria. As there are currently no recycling and final treatment capacities for such batteries installed in Nigeria, it explores options for setting-up such capacities, including technical aspects and investments needs. The study takes into account the wider end-of-life battery recycling landscape and has an additional focus on feasible management options under an e-waste compensation scheme. While the study primarily focuses on Nigeria, many aspects are also relevant for other countries aiming to set-up own Li-ion battery recycling capacities.
