What is done with the old batteries at the end of a vehicle's life?

Recycling of used high-voltage batteries does not damage the environment. The lithium-ion battery in e-vehicles is a valuable source of raw materials. When the battery is recycled, secondary raw materials such as lithium, cobalt, nickel and manganese can be extracted.  This helps to replace the expensive mining of primary raw materials.
