Scope
Content
This document will focus on the language used to describe batteries at the end of battery or vehicle life as batteries are transitioned to the recycler, dismantler, or other third party. This document also provides a compilation of current recycling technologies and flow sheets, and their application to different battery chemistries at the end of battery life. At the time of document authorship, the technical information cited is most applicable to Li-ion battery type rechargeable energy storage systems (RESS), but the language used is not to be limited by chemistry of the battery systems and is generally applicable to other RESS.
Rationale
Content
Due to the pace of the evolution of vehicle battery technology, this technical information report aims to assist recycling and final disposition of automotive batteries by providing a common understanding of terms and of generalized disassembly and recycling methodologies. The following terms and methodology are intended to aid in the understanding and clarity of future documents describing the multiple conditions occurring at the end of battery life. With increasing hybridization and general electrification of cars and trucks, the number of batteries in uncertain conditions will be increasing.
