2022 CHALLENGE MISSION DETAILS
At SAE International, our charge is to embrace opportunities and tackle challenges presented by the evolving mobility landscape. As new players emerge in the mobility space that promote sustainable and convenient ways of travel, we have expanded our view of mobility and how to prioritize the myriad ways in which mobility affects our everyday lives.
Battery Recycling Solutions, Inc. (BRSI), a leader in high voltage battery recycling, is seeking proposals for a data driven, environmentally conscious repurposing solution for high voltage batteries beyond their serviceable lives in automotive applications. The solution should be innovative, and should prioritize conversion in a safe and attainable method while considering the economic implications for BRSI. BRSI expects the program will break even by year 2 and turn a profit by year 4 with a volume of conversion increasing by 35% annually.
