Meet the Startup Stripping Old Planes for EV Parts

Danny Lee and Angus Whitley of Bloomberg write on a startup that is turning old planes into EV parts.

The C3 Take
  • Nandina REM is a Singapore startup that is repurposing aviation-grade aluminum for EV battery casings.
  • The company has also used old tray tables from planes to create bumpers for cars.
  • Thus far Nandina has completed its proof of concept on three Boeings and plans to scale its operation up to 40 planes next year.

“One of the reasons casings are such a key focus is because securing secondary materials at high quality is a key challenge for the EV market. If you look at all the aircraft that are going to be retired between now and 2030-2035, there’s over 50 million battery casings for EVs that could be made.”
