According to foreign media reports, in the United States, 99% of lead-acid car batteries can be recovered, one of the most recovered products. Although the battery is exhausted, the new battery can be purchased, but the old battery can also be pulverized or melted, reuse the raw materials. (: Volkswagen official website) As the number of electric vehicles have increased, the number of batteries is constantly increasing, and people have begun to worry about how such lithium-ion batteries are used after 10 to 15 years.
Volkswagen plans to produce one million electric vehicles in 2025, and have begun to study how to reuse batteries in such electric vehicles. Q Why is recycling that will cause people to care? The first is cost: Because the electric car battery is complex, it is made of rare metals such as cobalt and manganese, and it is one of the most expensive parts in such cars. As electric vehicles become more common, recover such metals from waste batteries, which is much cheaper than from earth.
More importantly, it can reduce carbon footprints, not only to reduce carbon footprints that occur when driving, but also strictly control the battery's recycle during battery raw materials to abandon the entire life. In order to solve such challenges, the public is using two ways to recycle batteries, one is to launch portable charging piles, one energy-saving recycling. Old lithium ion batteries that have been used for electric vehicles for 10 years or more may not be suitable for automotive supply power, but they still have considerable energy capacity (the energy of the 2019 Volkswagen E-Golf model can store energy And the US family, even longer useful energy).
Electric cars should be charged in many places, and such places may not charge piles, or even without charging station. Mobile charging treasure These two questions can be solved only by one solution. Volkswagen Group plans to produce a portable fast charging pile, such charging piles can store 360 kWh energy, up to 4 cars charging at a time, the maximum fast charge output power is 100 kW.
As with the portable mobile phone charger, the Charging pile of the Volkswagen Group can be used until the power is exhausted, or to connect to the power to charge yourself. In addition, the charging pile is small, and it is difficult to deploy a place to charge in the music festival. The battery pack used by the charging pile and the electric vehicle produced by the mass MEB platform, in this way, when the electric vehicle battery pack is used to reach the limit, it is also useful as a battery for charging piles.
The first portable fast charging pile of the Volkswagen Group is expected to be installed in Germany next year, and the Volkswagen Group is expected to fully produce the charging pile in 2020. Recycling battery materials If all batteries have lost storage energy, the Volkswagen Salzkit (Salzgitter parts plant will play). The factory is expected to become the first electric vehicle battery recovery center.
Next year, the end of the Salzkit Factory will reach 1200 tons, about 3,000 electric vehicles. Volkswagen will use a special broken battery machine, a single battery component will be grinded, and the liquid electrolyte will be removed, and such battery components will be broken down into "black powder", including valuable cobalt, lithium, manganese and nickel. Such raw materials, and such feedstocks are further physically separated, and then they can be reused in new batteries.
The long-term goal of the public is that it is hoped that about 97% of the scrap electric vehicle (EV) medium battery pack raw materials. Now, the recovery rate of the Material raw material is 53%. Salzkit Factory is expected to make the recovery rate of the mass battery raw materials to 72%.
Volkswagen expects to have more battery recycling plants similar to Salzkit Factory in the next few years. Considering the sales volume of the Volkswagen Electric Motor Plan, the public will take the battery recovery in the company within the company, although it is currently at least 10 years of processing battery in the company's internal treatment of battery recovery.
