JBCE’s Environment & Energy Committee welcomes a guest speaker from DG Environment on the Batteries and Waste Batteries Regulations

01/12/2022

On 1st December, JBCE's Environment & Energy Committee was pleased to welcome Mr. Mattia Pellegrini from the European Commission’s DG ENV as a guest speaker.

Mr. Pellegrini explained the proposed revisions to the EU regulatory framework for batteries to the Committee. His explanation touched on various aspects of the new regulations, including such things as provisions on recycled content, collection targets for waste batteries, targets for recycling efficiencies, and the digital battery passport. His explanation and the subsequent Q&A session allowed the members to get a better understanding of the objectives of the new regulatory framework, and the anticipated path forward.

With the publication of the final text expected early in 2023, JBCE's Environment & Energy Committee will continue to monitor developments, including the anticipated secondary legislation and implementation guidelines, and will engage with stakeholders as necessary.
