The increasing adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) has brought to light an emerging challenge - the management of end-of-life batteries. Traditional methods of disposal are not only environmentally detrimental but also lead to the loss of valuable materials contained in these batteries.
Worley is excited to announce the initiation of a groundbreaking Circular Economy Project dedicated to the recycling of electric car batteries. Recognising the increasing demand for sustainable solutions in the automotive sector, they are committed to leading the charge towards a more environmentally conscious future by launching this project.
The endeavour, while exciting, poses unique challenges due to the complexities of recycling electric car batteries and the understanding of the circular economy model required. It necessitates not only a deep comprehension of the recycling process but also a comprehensive grasp of the energy sector and innovative project management approaches.
To navigate these complexities and ensure the project's success, They are seeking to onboard a seasoned Project Manager with demonstrable experience managing similar high-stake projects. The Project Manager will be responsible for leading a team of experts specialising in the circular economy and energy sector. The team will be tasked with executing the project from the initiation stage to closure, ensuring compliance with project objectives, scope and schedule.
The principles of a circular economy revolve around reducing waste, continually using resources, and creating more sustainable systems. The core goal of this project is to establish a system that not only recycles used car batteries but also reintroduces the recovered materials back into the production cycle, hence reducing the need for new raw materials.
|Perform a Gap Analysis, Define the project goals, identify stakeholders, and prepare a project scope statement
|Establish a recycling site
|Feasibility study to select a site, constructions needed, equipment needed
|Creating a Collection Network
|Identify the main suppliers,Negotiations and contracts
|Public awareness and engagement
|Design and roll out of awareness campaigns
|Implement a Circular Economy Approach
|Identify potential buyers of recovered batteries, Negotiate contracts with buyers, Delivery methods, after-sale services
|Review and Documentation, Lessons learned for future projects, Final Reports
The project management plan must contain the following items:
Key features and assumptions made in developing the schedule must be explained. For example, your assumptions on major milestone completion dates, client’s approval dates, slacks (floats), critical activities and critical path duration along with any other assumptions you made to complete the Gantt chart should be discussed.
