Li-Ion batteries are one emerging technology, which is incorporated into more and more technical structures of our everyday life. 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. Thus, spent batteries are an interesting subject to establish concepts of 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.
The “DECHEMA Infoday” will address these challenges and give an insight into several new developments and technological concepts in fields of battery logistics, mechanical and metallurgical processing. The “DECHEMA Infoday” will be held in conjunction with the project AutoBattRec of EIT RawMaterials.
Online-Registration will be open in September 2019.
