A used up lithium battery will likely have to be shipped at least hundreds if not a thousand miles or more on average.
Have you heard of electric transport, powered by clean energy ?
Then there is the chemical seperation of the battery materials. There is a reason it's only being done on a large scale where there no environmental regulations.
You are as usual ignorant. Read the Tesla announcements. Production and 100% recycling at the GF1 in Reno, NV using self generated clean energy.
All electric comes from the same power gird which is absolutely reliant on fossil and fissile fuels to cover base load and will remain that way for the forseeable future.
There is not going to be some special green transportation infrastructure just for shipping batteries. That's a delusional retarded fantasy.
Used up batteries will go on in the back of a diesel powered tractor trailer like literally everything shipped in this country for the forseeable future.
So say I have a dead EV battery how do I get it to NV?
I'm sure it's just coincidence. But NV does a lot of hazardous waste disposal.
Probably has nothing to do with tesla picking that location lol.
