Waste Lithium-Ion Batteries: What the RCRA Rules Say, Don’t Say, and How They Might be Fixed | 2024 Battery Webinar Series

During this webinar, Principal Aaron Goldberg (Washington, DC) will explain how the U.S. hazardous waste regulations under Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and its state counterparts apply to generators, collectors, and recyclers of used lithium-ion batteries, as well as materials resulting from battery recycling, such as black mass. It will highlight key unanswered questions and the potential need for additional guidance or regulatory changes to facilitate the development of a circular economy for the critical minerals that are essential components of the batteries.

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.
