“This year’s ICBR will be different. Salzburg and Austria are offering a unique and diversified panel of battery-related activities from every part of the battery value chain: from mining of lithium-containing Spodumene rocks to research on advanced processes for battery material recycling as well as the sustainable development of NF metals applications. You will get the opportunity to listen to and exchange with international experts including one of the most famous brand names of the European Car Industry – Porsche – who also contributes to the fame of the city of Salzburg.”

This year is also the year to stop and reflect after the weaknesses the Covid-19 crisis has revealed in our economy, leading to a return of concepts such as self-sufficiency and rebuilding strategic stocks in the fields of health care, food, energy supply and others.

Is the current business slowdown an opportunity for Europe to reinforce its expertise in the production and recycling of batteries in a modern circular economy context while shortening supply chains?


ICBR 2020 will give you the opportunity to forge your personal opinion on the above questions and more such as EU battery policy, Circular Economy, EU Green Deal, Battery Second Life, Recycling Technologies …

It will offer you the unique networking opportunity regular delegates have come to expect from ICM conferences. This year you will not be disappointed as ICBR celebrates being “the place to be” for experts of the battery recycling business world for a quarter of a century.
