The digital product passport (DPP)1 initiative was introduced by the European Commission in March 2022 to enhance product circularity. DPP allows various stakeholders and consumers to access vital information about a product's environmental impact — curbing carbon emissions effectively in major, rapidly growing industries.

The battery industry is one of the main focuses of DPP. While batteries may power the low-carbon energy revolution, their production carries a hefty environmental price — marked by substantial carbon emissions, massive waste generated in extraction and purification, and enormous strain on natural resources. Implementing battery traceability throughout the battery production lifecycle tackles carbon emissions effectively from the start.

Dassault Systèmes is a leading expert in battery traceability, reshaping the energy future through our deep expertise and platform-driven solutions. We set the industry standards for sustainable supply chains and transparent ecosystems, complying with the battery passport requirements and the European Commission regulations2 to meet escalating battery demands sustainably.

To ensure a more responsible and sustainable battery supply chain, tracking and tracing battery production, distribution and recycling becomes crucial. End-to-end traceability — a distinct feature of Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE® platform helps battery manufacturers align their output with battery passport3 benchmarks.

Through connected multi-systems on the platform, battery manufacturers can: 

  • Accelerate from design to manufacturing and recycling, leveraging lifecycle assessment and a model-based approach
  • Ensure digital continuity from customer specifications, knowledge management, engineering and decision-making to manufacturing execution
  • Manage sourcing and battery supplier data, such as supplier details and the batch or lot number for raw materials, including previously recycled and recovered materials
  • Establish incoming and in-line quality control
  • Identify and track manufacturing facility location, date and manufacturer operator ID
  • Conduct surveys and reports on manufacturing environmental impacts, including CO2 emissions and energy consumption by a given machine

End-to-End Traceability in a Heterogeneous and Dynamic Environment

Streamline product development process and optimize product quality with systems traceability. 

Pioneering Future Battery Ecosystems

Modeling and simulation capabilities on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enable many visionary battery manufacturers to surpass their key performance indicators and achieve greater returns, including:


boost in battery modeling experiment productivity


decrease in the need for physical prototypes 


reduction in time wastage 

In pursuit of the next-generation ecosystem, Dassault Systèmes forges a strategic partnership with Verkor to redefine industry best practices and establish sustainable and traceable gigafactories for a low-carbon future.
