A GREAT POTENTIAL IN RECYCLING BATTERIES

Mining equipment, excavators, forklifts, loaders and trucks. The list of different types of vehicles that now run on electricity is constantly expanding. Electric cars and plug-in hybrids will dominate the market by the year 2026.

In just a few years, electric cars will have completely taken over.

All of these vehicles demand large amounts of batteries that need to be taken care of in the best possible way the day they are exhausted. 

Inquiries from various vehicle manufacturers about Stena Recycling’s ability to recycle their batteries markedly increased throughout 2018. There is now a range of initiatives and projects within the Stena Metall Group to meet future demand for battery recycling. One of the most important is the building of a battery center at Stena Nordic Recycling Center. While there have previously been variations of recycling methods for batteries, now a holistic approach is being taken that will enable larger-scale activities. 

Among other activities underway, Stena Recycling’s staff are physically analysing and taking apart various types of vehicle batteries. All work is being documented in different ways so that it can be fed into the system that is currently being set up and serve as the focus of dismantling.

“To begin with, we are making more moments together. We learn faster and we can directly discuss the various steps it takes to carry out the work safely. It feels very exciting to be involved from the beginning in this context and Stena Recycling definitely has the capacity to become a leader in this area”, says Michael White, who works at the battery center.
