A consortium of German -funded carmakers and battery manufacturers, including BMW, Umicore and BASF, will develop a “battery passport” that tracks the carbon content and footprint of batteries in Europe, Germany’s economy ministry said on Monday.

A consortium of 11 partners has received 8.2 million euros ($ 8.78 million) in government funding to develop common classifications and standards for collecting and disclosing data on batteries, which could soon become mandatory under European Union rules.

The European Commission’s proposal to be discussed later this year states that rechargeable electric vehicles, light transport and industrial batteries sold in Europe must disclose their carbon footprint from 2024 and comply with CO2 emission limits from 2027.

They must also disclose the content of recycled raw materials in such batteries starting 2027, followed by the requirement to use a minimum portion of recycled cobalt, lithium, nickel and lead starting 2030.

The German consortium is the first project in Europe to try to design digital products to meet these regulations, the German economy ministry said.

The battery can carry a QR code that links to an online database where EV owners, businesses or regulators can access information about battery composition.

These digital devices should also facilitate the recycling of raw materials in batteries, a government statement said, which would reduce reliance on foreign suppliers who control most of the resources, such as lithium and nickel, that are essential for battery production.
