In this episode, Jo and Ravi Kempaiah, CEO of Zen E-bikes, talk about e-bike battery waste and the need to recycle lithium batteries.
Ravi earned a PhD with his work in the Computational Modeling of Electrochemical Ionic Intercalation in One-dimensional Battery Electrodes, where he used density functional theory to gain insights into the nanomechanical and diffusion dynamics … which means very little to us, but we know this: Ravi is a smart dude. When he talks batteries and chemistry, then, the industry should listen.
