Batteries are a key technology for climate protection. If we want to get away from dirty car engines and oil as well as gas heating, we need a lot more storage capacity. But today the production of batteries is often associated with environmental degradation and human rights violations. It can't stay that way! How can we make batteries in a clean way? How can we make electromobility a truly green alternative to combustion engines and manufacture car batteries in an environmentally friendly and socially responsible manner?
