The Battery Passport is a pivotal tool that enables the development of a sustainable, circular, and just battery value chain. RCS Global is proud to have presented the first Battery Passport Pilot in collaboration with the Global Battery Alliance at the World Economic Forum in January 2023. Based on lessons learned and counting on validated supply chain data from industry leaders, we introduce the Claritas Battery Passport Solution.
Claritas – RCS Global Battery Passport
Claritas is a comprehensive real-world and a digital solution working in tandem, specifically designed for Battery Raw Materials (BRM), enabling traceability and the collection of validated responsible sourcing and Carbon Footprint data. This innovative solution covers the entire battery supply chain, seamlessly integrating different approaches such as tracing and tracking. It ensures interoperability while providing accurate and verified information on responsible sourcing practices and carbon footprint throughout the entire lifecycle of Battery Raw Materials, from mine to market.
The EU Battery Regulation aims to ensure that batteries placed on the EU market are sustainable and safe throughout their entire life cycle. All economic operators placing batteries on the EU market will need to establish a due diligence management system to address environmental and social risks in their battery supply chain. […]
By February 2027, battery manufacturers will need to label their batteries with a QR code that provides access to a battery product passport, including details regarding due diligence, carbon footprint and recycled content.
Responding to the outlined regulatory requirements, Claritas operates simultaneously as a database and a data exchange system including both centralised and decentralised governance. To facilitate this, the solution utilises a system of self-sovereign identity and digital wallets, a Spherity wallet technology, applied to the battery raw materials supplier ecosystem. […]
The platform’s high level of customization ensures adaptation to future legislative, market or company requirements. Claritas users will have the capability to issue Battery Passports with consistent data sets, meeting both EU and US regulatory demands for EV batteries.
RCS Global’s proven material traceability expertise & solutions ensure transparent tracking of recycled content. As businesses pursue circular economy goals and compliance, proving increased recycled content is crucial. Particularly in battery production, meeting EU Battery Regulation targets is essential. […]
RCS creates digital twins for recycled materials, offering credible insights into recycled content percentages throughout the supply chain. The system supports recyclers in demonstrating best-in-class processes, making it indispensable for anticipating future requirements and unlocking circular economy opportunities with substantiated proof.
