MG Motor India says the partnership will help ensure environmentally-sustainable and secure recycling of the batteries of its ZS EVs.
MG Motor India on Monday said it has partnered with e-waste recycling and end-to-end service provider, TES-AMM for recycling of batteries of its electric vehicle ZS EV.
The partnership will ensure environmentally-sustainable and secure recycling of the ZS EV batteries, the company said in a statement.
MG Motor India President and Managing Director Rajeev Chaba said the company is on a mission to develop a comprehensive EV ecosystem that supports India's drive towards its greener and cleaner future.
"We strongly believe that battery management is a critical area that needs focus. Our partnership with TES-AMM builds along these lines and ensures that batteries not only reenter the value chain, but are also recycled while following the most eco-friendly protocols. We believe it will go a long way in India's sustainable e-mobility future," he added.
TES-AMM has Asia's only Li-ion battery recycling plant and is one of the few companies certified in multiple management systems. It uses a unique mechanical-hydrometallurgical process for enhanced asset recovery that is environmentally superior and safer, the statement said.
