Sustainability in electromobility is a major challenge
To make electromobility sustainable, second-life concepts and efficient recycling of lithium-ion batteries and lithium-ion polymer batteries will play a key role in the very near future. Completely new industries and companies are emerging to take on this task.
Optimize your battery recycling with EA
Regenerative loads and bidirectional programmable DC power supplies from EA Elektro-Automatik make your battery recycling:
Bidirectional DC lab power supplies test the remaining capacity of your batteries
The primary goal is to find a second use for the batteries from electromobility after they have been used in the vehicle (second-life use). For example, as energy storage for solar power or wind energy. When testing the remaining capacity, the battery is first fully charged and then discharged in a controlled manner. The capacity (SOC) and state of aging (SOH) are measured and the energy is fed back into the power grid with an efficiency of over 96%.
The bidirectional programmable DC power supplies from EA Elektro-Automatik are ideally suited for this process.
Electronic loads with mains feedback for the complete discharge of your accumulators
After the second-life cycle, the rechargeable batteries are subjected to final recycling. This process attempts to recover as many components of a lithium-ion battery as possible as raw material for new batteries. Before the batteries are disassembled into their individual parts, they must be fully discharged. This is done in order to avoid the risk of contact-hazardous voltage or fire and to use the residual energy still stored in the battery.
EA Elektro-Automatik’s regenerative electronic loads are a very efficient solution for this purpose.
