About a year ago, ELVES launched their Traction Battery Programme – a programme which offers free collection and recycling of NiMH and Li-Ion batteries that are found in electric, hybrid and mild-hybrid vehicles. This programme is now known as Electric ELVES!
Electric ELVES is available to all Authorised Treatment Facilities (ATFs) in the country. If an ATF receives a vehicle with one of these batteries, they can contact ELVES to access dismantling information and to arrange the free collection and recycling of the battery.
They can also avail of a free online training course. This training course allows staff at ATFs to gain a better understanding of the technology used with these batteries and the associated risks.
