Carmakers Charged With Electric-Vehicle Battery Disposal
China is placing responsibility for properly recycling vehicle batteries on new-energy carmakers — an effort to prevent environmental pollution in the emerging sector.
The new guidelines, which will take effect in August, also include rules for related industry players such as battery producers.
The guidelines — which were jointly issued Monday by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and six other agencies — said new-energy car producers and their sales units must set up “recycling service networks,” where spent batteries will either be repaired for reuse or properly disposed of.
