Over the course of that year, a total of 127,537kg of lithium-ion drive batteries and lithium-ion starter batteries were collected. Of these, 68,072kg were given a second life by a conversion company in which they could be reused, usually for energy storage. Recycling companies processed 59,465kg and recovered about 70 per cent of the raw materials. This was well above the 50 per cent, by weight, mandatory recycling requirement for lithium-ion batteries.

For other starter batteries, such as lead batteries, a mandatory recycling requirement of 65 per cent, by weight, applies. This requirement too was easily exceeded in 2021.
