Used batteries of electric cars contain valuable raw materials that can still be used. In order to be able to recycle them, a research team from the Centre for Digitised Battery Cell Production (ZDB) at the Fraunhofer IPA is developing a robot cell with different tools. The cell should be able to carry out all the necessary disassembly steps and be suitable for all types of batteries. (Press release)
The aim of the joint research project is to demonstrate the feasibility of dismantling of battery modules and e-drive units in an automated process and on an industrial scale, taking economic and regulatory conditions into account.
