Over 200 international experts will discuss and present topics like Safety aspects with lithium primary and lithium rechargeable batteries, Battery technologies development, Energy storage: opportunities for a second use of batteries?, Safety aspects in the end of life value chain, and Energy storage and e-mobility: complementary technologies? Of course there will be issues like the Update of the review of the Batteries Directive 2006/66/EC, New trends in battery recycling technologies: primary and rechargeable, and International developments in batteries collection and recycling. Economic aspects of collection or take back schemes will as well be highlighted like Urban mobility: The gate to e-mobility? and Eco-design: A critical approach to batteries removability?

An exhibition area is integrated into the congress facility, where vendors meet their clients. A cocktail reception and networking dinner at the romantic Palácio do Conde D’Óbidos create an excellent atmosphere to get in touch with business partners, colleagues and clients.

On Friday, September 22, 2017 the congress is organizing a workshop about “Why the Carriage of Waste Batteries Can Be Dangerous!” and a plant tour to the leading recycling company Ambigroup Reciclagem SA.
