Growing electromobility brings new challenges. What happens to the batteries for electrically powered vehicles when they are almost empty or when accidents occur? How can the batteries be reused or the individual parts recycled? What specifications must be met for environmentally friendly storage and transport?
The new research project “InnoLogBat: Innovation Lab for Battery Logistics in E-Mobility” looks not only at the production processes and the end product, but also at the entire cycle. In the circular economy, the raw materials used are both waste-free and emission-free for as long as possible.
The focus of technological developments is on safety in the storage, handling, transport, and reuse of batteries. For example, old batteries could be used in power plants or robots in logistics to store electricity. In addition to new technologies, new approaches to recycling-friendly product design and new business models and logistics concepts are also being developed.
Partners are the University of Leipzig, Remondis Industrie Service GmbH & Co. KG, Rhenus Automotive SE, and Mercedes-Benz Energy GmbH.
