DECHEMA Colloqium: Recycling Challenges, Technologies and Solutions for Li-Ion-Batteries

Li-Ion batteries are an emerging technology which is incorporated into more and more technical structures of our everyday life. Accordingly, in upcoming years large mass streams of spent batteries are to be expected. The colloquium will address the challenges of integrating Li-Ion batteries into a circular economy and give an insight into several new developments and technological concepts in fields of battery logistics, mechanical and pyrometallurgical processing.

Especially the expected growth rates in the field of electromobility will lead to a growing number of spent batteries in the near future. One battery unit of a full electric vehicle (PEV) weights typically more than 200 kg. The state of the art battery technology bases on Li-ion technology, using different 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.

Help

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
