More and more electric cars are hitting the roads. According to Bosch estimates, they will account for around 70 percent of all newly registered passenger cars in Europe by 2030. This is accompanied by an increasing demand for batteries and the recycling of the raw materials they contain, such as lithium, cobalt or nickel. Bosch has developed special machines, systems and software for this purpose. Its subsidiary Bosch Rexroth is now supplying the Battery Lifecycle Company, a joint venture between REMONDIS subsidiary TSR Recycling and Rhenus Automotive, with the first fully automated system in Europe for unloading and dismantling battery modules.
“Electromobility can only become established in the long term if sufficient raw materials are available to produce the batteries.”
At HANNOVER MESSE 2023, Bosch will be presenting its industrial technology for battery recycling. It showcases:
● Efficient recycling as a building block of a circular economy
● Model project at the Battery Lifecycle Company– With its automated solution, Bosch significantly increases the speed of recycling: with the current manual process, it takes up to 24 hours before the batteries are completely discharged.
● Industrial technology from Bosch for recycling- It has now developed specific hardware and software for battery recycling, which will be marketed worldwide together with partners and system integrators. In addition to fully automated battery module unloading stations, these include ergonomically flexible workstations for technical analysis and safe battery disassembly, transfer systems for transporting batteries of different weight classes, and software for guiding employees through various process steps. In addition, Bosch offers a “Track & Trace solution” for tracking the condition, material origin and processing status of batteries.
