Improved Eco-Design of Lithium-Ion Battery Packs for Simplifying the Recycling Process

Due to the increasing numbers of lithium-ion batteries in electric cars as well as in electric and electronic equipment, the design and recycling of batteries is gaining increasing importance. This fact demands for an efficient and holistic battery concept as well as a future concept for recycling and treatment.

Based on the results of the research projects LIBRES and VECEPT, the projecte MPROVE focuses on the improvement of different parts, processes and the framework of electrified vehicles. The overall target of the project is to reduce the costs while increasing the energy efficiency and the mass producibility. Therefore the consortium works on the whole value chain and life cycle of electrified vehicles. Two demonstrators – first, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and second, a lithium-ion battery – will be developed in the project.

Two main topics of the project will be examined in detail: The eco-design and the recycling of traction lithium-ion batteries. In this article the research questions and planned activities should be highlighted and the main challenges of future battery recycling discussed.

BEST PRACTICE

Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facility

Renergia, a brand new Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facility opened in Canton Lucerne, shows that Waste-to-Energy can provide reliable heat for industries.

Category: Incineration / Waste-to-Energy plant
Executing firm: Renergia Zentralschweiz AG

MBT Ljubljana, Slovenia

In Slovenia arises one of the largest and most modern waste treatment plants in Europe.

Category: Recycling / MBT
Executing firm: STRABAG AG

Flue Gas Cleaning

The final unit of the incineration plant is one of the most important parts as it has the objective of cleaning the air pollutants produced.

Category: Incineration
Executing firm: ete.a - Ingenieurgesellschaft für Energie– und Umweltengineering & Beratung mbH

Batch Dry Fermentation

The biogas produced from the waste can be converted in a CHP to electrical and thermal energy or fed as processed bio-methane into the natural gas grid or used as fuel (CNG).

Category: Recycling / Fermentation
Executing firm: BEKON Energy Technologies Co. & KG

MBT Warsaw, Poland

The Bio-Dry™ system is a static, aerated and flexibly enclosed reactor for the biological drying of various solid waste matters containing some biodegradable contents.
