Experts will give insight into new developments and technologies and discuss the challenges encountered when establishing “circular economy” concepts for spent batteries.
Li-Ion batteries are incorporated into more and more technical structures of our everyday life, such as smartphones, e-scooters and e-bikes, laptops and many more. And their number will yet increase: Especially the expected growth rates in the field of electro mobility will provide large mass streams of spent batteries in the upcoming years.
One battery unit of a full electric vehicle (PEV) weights typically more than 200 kg, some of the upcoming generations up to 700 kg. The state of the art battery technology bases on Li-ion technology, using different cathode active materials like iron-phosphate and nickel-, manganese-, and / or cobalt-oxides. Further components are metallic foils, organic electrolytes, special lithium-salts and electronic and structural components.
Li-ion batteries are exemplary for the challenges of the circular economy. Due to the complexity of the battery structure and the size of a typical battery cell, as well as its chemical and potential energy content, several challenges arise during the handling and the processing of the batteries.
