Electric vehicles (EVs) have been a part of history for more than a century, but only since the late 1990s real development for mass production has begun. This technological development was born out of the need to achieve a greater degree of environmental sustainability in the transportation sector. This has not only involved cars and the passenger transport sector in general but has also moved the industrial vehicle sector in the same research direction. Over these years, many problems have arisen regarding EVs, some of which have been solved while others are still in the process of resolution. One of these problems is the management of EV batteries once they have reached the end of their useful life. The EU Battery Regulation Directive issued by the European Commission (effective July 12, 2023), in continuity with the previous regulation 2006/66/EC, stipulates that every battery manufacturer responds to the principle of Extended Responsibility and must think about the end of life of its product. One of the purposes of this paper is to analyze this problem and suggest possible solutions. In this paper will be made also considerations about the logistic of these solutions, will be analyzed various solutions, some of these are the need of adoption of an intermediate warehouse and the differences between the adoption of a singular warehouse instead of multiple warehouses. For the logistic will be considered only the European area, for the second life solutions will be considered also companies out of Europe.
