Researcher Conversation Series – A Circular Value Chain for Cobalt


Working Towards a Circular Value Chain for Cobalt

Delivered by Tom Fairlie, Senior Sustainability Manager at the Cobalt Institute.

Launched in 2022, the Cobalt Institute’s Circular Economy Work Programme investigates CE models across the entire cobalt value chain while providing actionable recommendations to achieve a sustainable and inclusive cobalt industry.

Extraction, product design, and the end of life of consumer products form 3 axis of the latest report – launched in April 2023. These were the hotspots identified in the cobalt value chain where resources are lost, underutilised, or at risk of causing social and environmental harm.

A total of ten circular solutions are proposed in the report, and assessed according to their capacity to generate social and environmental benefits, as well as their capacity to generate tangible value for stakeholders.

Tom oversees core areas of supply chain decarbonization, circular economy, and recycling, with a particular focus on the growth of e-mobility at the Cobalt Institute.
