Battery Solutions – Electrifying Our Community Gardens

“Electric vehicle (EVs) recycling is on the rise. When some EVs battery packs are sent for recycling they come in containers called cocoons, these units are not as easily recyclable. Battery Solutions partnered with John Bradburn at ERA Environmental Management Solutions and discovered that these cocoons have the opportunity to be reused and repurposed into garden beds. There are many underserved areas and one such area, Flint, MI has been hit harder than most. The Electrifying our Community Gardens initiative is in an effort to support our local community, provide access to fresh produce, support well-being, give access for all and create a sustainable solution. Through the reuse and repurposing of the cocoons and leveraging fertilizer made from recycled batteries this is a true example of supporting the circular economy.”
