Each battery has its own, unique performance level. We measure this so as to ascertain whether it can be used for other applications.
Depending on the case, it may also be possible to repair defective batteries. Our experienced members of staff check each battery individually and decide on a case by case basis which is the best course of action.
Defective batteries are often disposed of directly and shredded, and end up in incinerators. At Rhenus, we disassemble them and carry out any necessary repairs so that they can be put to further use. If not, we disassemble the batteries so that they can be disposed of separately.
After a certain age, the performance of lithium-ion batteries is no longer sufficient for use in electric vehicles. However, it is still possible to use them as battery storage. The excess energy generated by solar or wind power plants can be stored and used later.
Our affiliate REMONDIS disposes of the batteries together with its partners. A lot of waste management companies specialise in the recycling of certain raw materials. The aim is to recycle as many of the components of a battery as possible so that they can be used again for the construction of new batteries, thereby saving valuable resources.
Our group of companies already has decades of expertise in waste disposal technology. Backed by our experience, as well as our close relationships with waste management companies, we use this expertise to achieve the best possible recycling processes for battery systems.
