According to foreign media reports, local time March 1, Japanese Automotive Honda Automobile (Hondamotor) said that the company plans to use waste lithium-ion batteries as raw materials to start producing nickel-cobalt alloys. Honda's mixed passenger models are equipped with lithium-ion batteries. On March 1, Tokyo held the resource recycling fair (ResourceRecyClingexpo), Tomokazuabe, general manager of Honda Motor Company Circular Resource Promoting Department, said: "From 2025, Honda will recycle a large number of waste lithium-ion batteries, We will be ready to add factory.
"At present, Honda produces 14 mixed passenger models. According to Honda, its hybrid vehicle sales account for 26% of its total sales, and 747,177 vehicles sold in 2018. ABE also said: "By 2030, Honda may generate 300,000 cars with lithium-ion battery.
"Honda's plan is to produce nickel-cobalt alloy using the cathode of the waste battery. The target is the hydrogen storage market. ABE said: "According to the market price of 2017, from a Fit (FIT) car, we can recycle nickel and cobalt materials worth 4,000 yen (about 36 US dollars, 239.
2 yuan). "So far, the company's nickel recovery rate is 99.7, cobalt recovery rate is 91.
3%, and manganese recovery is 94.8%. ABE talked: "People are worried about nickel and cobalt materials shortage, and I am worried that the recovery cost will be reduced after a few years.
"ABE estimates that the cost of metal recovered from the waste battery is 100 yen per kilogram (about 5.98 yuan). However, the recycling company's insiders said that because the battery supply is limited, the lack of mature recovery technology leads to the low efficiency, the current cost is higher.
ABE indicates that the recovery cost can be reduced by controlling the cost of transportation and the use of robots to disassemble the car battery. Honda plans to sell such secondary alloy as a metal hydride (MH), used as a hydrogen storage tank alloy. A executive of Japan Steelworks said that in recent years, Japan's metal hydride alloy needs to rise.
The company has produced such an alloys and the hydrogen storage tanks for more than 30 years. The hydrogen storage tanks of Japanese steel consists of metal hydride alloy, and such alloys consist of 60% nickel, 30% lanthanum and ruthenium and 10% silicone resin. The nickel alloy collides in contact with hydrogen, and the resin can be controlled to control the collision.
According to Japanese steel, a reservoir having a diameter of 4,200 mm and a height of 550 mm should use 4 tons of this alloy.
