Growing Electric Vehicle (EV) markets and increasing focus on Circular Economy (CE) strategies have stimulated research in the modelling of EV battery repurposing as a special case of product re-use in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This paper reviews the methods suggested in literature. Based on the results, the study proposes three types of LCA approaches on EV battery repurposing, taking the perspective of an automotive manufacturer in a CE context. Furthermore, the paper suggests a classification of EV battery repurposing cases depending on the chosen reference scenario and derives directions for future research.
