How to recycle lithium batteries?

Due to the shortage of resources and the need for environmental management, countries around the world attach great importance to the recycling of used batteries. The management of used batteries is imminent. How to make waste batteries resourceful and harmless is imminent. Let's take a look at the process of lithium battery recycling:


1. First, discharge the lithium battery;

2. Disassemble the lithium battery after the first step of discharge treatment, and recycle the disassembled shell;

3. Discharge the electrolyte in the lithium battery removed in step 2;

4. The lithium battery discharged from the electrolyte in step 3 is sent to the separation and recovery device for crushing;

5. Recover the positive electrode, negative electrode, aluminum shell and diaphragm obtained after the crushing in step 4;

Since its commercialization, lithium batteries have been widely used in many industries due to their unique advantages such as high specific energy, small size, light weight, wide application temperature range, long cycle life, and good safety performance. At the same time, lithium batteries are also one of the preferred light and high-energy power batteries for electric vehicles.

The recycling of used batteries can not only avoid waste of resources, make full use of materials, but also reduce the environmental pollution caused by metal ions contained in used batteries.
