    UL Issues Its First Certification for EV Battery Recycling, Repurposing for Energy Storage

    UL has granted its first certification to UL 1974, the Standard for Evaluation for Repurposing Batteries, to 4R Energy Corporation. Outlining how to sort and grade battery packs, modules and cells that were originally made for electric vehicles (EV) and other applications, UL 1974 helps identify a battery’s state-of-health and introduces ratings to determine the viability for their continued use. Through this process, performance-validated “second-life” batteries can be utilized for energy storage systems to provide a safe, reliable, clean energy source.
