For a greener carbon footprint
For a greener carbon footprint
The Federal Statistics Office has made an exact tally: in 2019, 83.7 million lithium-ion batteries were sold in Germany. The carbon footprint they create is currently significant, especially in their production. Because batteries play a key role in the successful implementation of the energy transformation - and in the associated increase in electromobility - the aim is for them to become "greener? in future.
