Recycling of Traction Batteries Code of Practice

FCAI member companies recognise the benefits of new technologies and fuels that provides for significant reductions in the operating emissions of road vehicles in Australia. FCAI members are also cognisant of the responsibility to provide for the maximum level of recyclability with minimal levels of land fill from vehicles and components at the end of their life for vehicles that they import.

With the introduction of increasingly electrified powertrain vehicles that contain and use traction batteries the FCAI supports an industry code of practice addressing the end of life treatment of traction battery components to ensure minimal environmental impact from traction battery disposal.

This Code only applies to motor vehicles imported by FCAI members. FCAI members will not be responsible for motor vehicles that they have not imported.
