Life Cycle Analysis of Batteries
In 2011 EPTA provided extensive input into the LCA made by Bio Intelligence Services of the three rechargable battery chemistries. Bio Intelligence were the consultants selected by the European Commission to assist it in preparing the review of NiCd rechargable batteries in cordless power tools required by Art 4.4 of the Battery Directive. The LCA demonstrated that no rechargable battery technology is significantly better or worse than another.
