State of Charge: Battery Sustainability

Carole Mars' work at ASU's Sustainability Consortium investigates the sustainability issues and opportunities in manufactured goods supply chains, focusing on electronics and automotive industries, emphasizing product fate, end-of-life management, and the circular economy. She received a PhD in chemistry from Penn State and worked as a process engineer in the semiconductor industry before joining the Consortium. 

The ability to generate, store and deliver power sustainably is a fundamental goal of a sustainable society. In this talk, Mars will explore the state of sustainability in the lead-acid and lithium ion battery industries, and the barriers of truly sustainable power storage systems.

A light lunch will be served.
