Emma Kendrick is chair of energy materials at the University of Birmingham and co-lead of the energy materials group. Her work focuses on sustainable battery design from cradle to cradle. Materials, manufacturing and recycling for lithium-ion, sodium-ion and novel cell technologies.

Martina Petranikova has over 15 years’ experience in the waste management of spent batteries of all chemistries including directive, collection systems, discharging, dismantling and material recycling. Development of chemical processes for recovery and reuse of valuable metals and non-metallic components. Experience in the optimization and scaling up of the developed chemical processes.  Research project leadership and supervision. Manager of a pilot plant for metal separation and mechanical pre-treatment.

Andreas Flegler is the Head of the Fraunhofer R&D Center Electromobility Bavaria at Fraunhofer ISC, the head of the Process Technology group and heads a BMBF BattFutur Research Group. His work focuses on novel process development for lithium-ion batteries and direct recycling. In addition, his group is developing and implementing design for recycling strategies for future of lithium-ion batteries.

Guinevere Giffin is currently the Scientific Head of the Fraunhofer R&D Center Electromobility Bavaria at Fraunhofer ISC and is doing her habilitation at the University of Würzburg. Her work focuses on the elucidation of structure-property-process relationships of materials and components for lithium-ion, sodium-ion and solid-state batteries, supercapacitors and during battery recycling
