Battery lifecycle analysis skills to address environmental issues
Are discarded lithium-ion batteries efficiently recycled?
Did you know it’s possible to extend the life of lithium-ion batteries?
Lithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries power the devices that drive modern life and business – from toothbrushes, scooters, home appliances and mobile devices to emerging greener methods of transport such as electric ships and planes. As the power source of electric vehicles, they are also at the heart of environmental goals such as reducing vehicle emissions, and machinery at industrial sites such as mining operations.
Today, consumers expect their batteries to last longer, cost less and charge faster – all in a safe and sustainable way.
It’s been shown that we can extend the life of Li-Ion batteries and restore their state of health (SoH) to almost 100%.The potential to extend battery lifetime by swapping out a small number of cells has been demonstrated in theory by simulating the reliability properties of battery cells and by virtually replacing the worst aged cells.
The whole idea of cell sorting and repurposing is based on the concept that only a few cells are actually degraded when the battery reaches its end of life. Most of the recovered cells from a battery module (around 89%) are still reusable!
