SUSTAINABLE BY DESIGN
Secure critical materials
Li-Ion batteries are either reused for stationary applications and thereby begin a “2nd life” by refabrication or recycled to extract needed raw materials for the production of new batteries.
Comply with compliance
Opening new reuse pathways mitigates rising disposal and compliance concerns over the growing battery waste stream. EV-manufacturers and LIB-producers can fulfill MIIT2016 after-sale (waste) requirements.
Access to storage systems
Repurposing used EV batteries splits the stationary storage costs per kWh. Therefore low-cost stationary energy storage could be available sooner than previously thought.
Old worn out large-scale Li-ion battery packs will be transferred into a controlled 2nd life or recycling process, hence reducing environmental pollution and exploitation of human and natural resources
For EV- and industrial-scale batteries, modules, batches of cells, accessories and tools
For 2nd-life producers to find matching battery configurations
For consumers to receive community support, 2nd-life offers and more
For car/LIB/OEM manufacturers to organize and track their redemption
For logistics company to safely transport hazardous goods
For authorities to enforce compliance and understand market for discarded industrial batteries
