On-Demand Webinar: Growing U.S. Extended Producer Responsibility Schemes for Lithium Batteries and Related Products | 2024 Battery Webinar Series

Please click here to view this webinar on demand.

This webinar will explore recent U.S. adoption of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) laws, holding manufacturers accountable for the entire life cycle of lithium batteries and related products. As the demand for these products continues to rise, more states are adopting requirements for the responsible management of li-ion battery waste on battery “producers,” which can include battery manufacturers, brand owners, or in some cases end device manufacturers. Principal Alex Horning (Washington, DC) and Associate Jeff Clare (San Francisco) will discuss the future of lithium battery EPR regulations as they expand in the United States, and how stakeholders should prepare and respond.

There is no charge to attend this webinar, but advance registration is required. This series is intended for in-house counsel, EHS professionals, and business leaders at companies, municipalities, and trade associations. To request an invitation, please contact [email protected].

Join us for a webinar series that will delve into the complex and evolving landscape of environmental and supply chain requirements affecting the entire battery lifecycle, from responsible sourcing of raw materials to end-of-life collection and recycling. Batteries have long been essential components in products as diverse as consumer electronics, medical devices, power tools, and industrial equipment. Moreover, as the world transitions towards more sustainable energy production and transportation, batteries have become a critical component in new energy infrastructure and electric vehicles. However, their design, manufacture, distribution, use, and recycling raise a host of legal and environmental issues that require careful consideration.
