Smartphone Makers have to Redesign the Phone


The European Union (EU) has established a new regulation that aims to make batteries more sustainable and reusable. The regulation covers the entire life cycle of a battery, including material extraction, production, and disposal, and applies to all types of batteries sold in the EU, including those used in electronic devices, industrial batteries, automotive batteries, and batteries used in electric vehicles and two-wheelers.

Starting in 2024, battery manufacturers in the EU will be required to report the carbon footprint of their products from extraction to recycling, and a maximum CO2 limit for batteries will be put into place in 2027. The new regulations aim to make batteries sold in the EU more environmentally friendly and could potentially set a precedent for the rest of the world.
