The Library & Research Service (L&RS) marked Science Week by hosting a webinar on Ireland’s first fully green batteries.

The virtual seminar discussed how researchers in Ireland have found new ways to recycle waste battery products into novel materials for new batteries.

Speakers included Dr Tony Keene of UCD. Dr Keene is a member of the LiCoRICE: Bringing lithium cobalt batteries into the circular economy team which was recently awarded a special prize under the Zero Emissions Challenge.

The virtual seminar was held in partnership with Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).
