1st YPLA Report
Our current Chapter Secretary and YP Chapter Liaison, Eng. Naret Treviño, was part of SWANA's First YP Leadership Academy (YPLA) Cohort. This group was tasked with researching Electric Vehicle (EV) Battery Management.
This project focuses on defining the challenges represented by the management and disposal of lithium batteries from three (3) perspectives: regulatory framework, recycling and safety. Once defined, solutions and recommendations are presented on how to tackle these challenges. Their excelent report can be found on this page and accessed by using the QR Code below.
I am grateful to the chapter for the support provided and always at your disposal. - Eng. Naret Treviño, PE
