PEM releases detailed battery recycling info-recycling

The Chair “Production Engineering of E-Mobility Components” (PEM) of RWTH Aachen has, together with the Association of German Mechanical Engineering (VDMA) and the TU Braunschweig, the readable brochure “Recycling of lithium-ion batteries” (linked as PDF linked ) released. The 28-pine document explains the structure and operation of batteries, the risks in dealing with the batteries, the challenges in disassembly and automation as well as various approaches of recycling.

“The amount of lithium-ion batteries, which are in the last portion of their ‘life’ in the electric vehicle, increases massively in the coming years. Therefore, we have to develop economic and sustainable concepts for recycling and raw material recovery, “emphasizes PEM head Professor Achim Kampker. Even today, a recycling ratio of up to 95 percent is technically feasible. “In the current battery production, very high production committees and the high rise in the next few years, end of life ‘batteries requires energy-efficient circular economy and higher recycling capacities,” says Professor Arno Kwade, founder and speaker of the ” Battery LabFactory “The TU Braunschweig.

The topic is also significant for mechanical and plant engineering, as a completely new market segment opened with increasing recycling needs, adds Dr. Joachim DOhner, CEO of the VDMA Department of Battery Production and “Senior Director Global Sales Battery” of KUKA Systems GmbH: “The required automation of the battery assembly and the recovery of recyclables will produce new know-how and in the end also new business units.”

For the implementation of sustainable concepts for batteries at your “end of life”, all actors along the value added – from material synthesis to battery cell, battery module and battery pack production to the use phase, would have to deal with the topic, emphasize the authors of the brochure.
