The overuse of fossil fuels and extreme reliance on them has depleted our natural resources, leading to the development of renewable energy alternatives. By focusing on reusing, repairing, refurbishing, and recycling, the circular economy functions as a resilient system that will help us tackle global challenges such as pollution, climate change, waste and biodiversity loss.
In its bid to adopt cleaner mobility alternatives, India is incentivizing the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) through subsidies. However, as the demand for EVs and, thus, lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) grows, steps must be taken to ensure proper battery disposal. This is part of India’s mission for a cleaner tomorrow.

 

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) constituted a committee in May 2022 to formulate the safety requirements for traction batteries. It was constituted mainly in the wake of fire incidents in electric vehicles, and this had experts from several renowned institutes, including ARCI, IISc, IIT etc. Based on the committee’s recommendation, MoRTH had proposed amendments to the AIS 156 & AIS 138 Rev 3 standard, which comes into effect in a phase-wise manner from 01-Dec-2022.
