Battery remanufacturing in China

Thursday, 1 December 2022

Rematec spoke with Li Yuke, Deputy Chief Engineer of China Automotive Technology and Research Center Co., Ltd. about battery remanufacturing in China.

The status of battery remanufacturing in China
Battery remanufacturing is a big trend, but it is still in the initial exploratory stage, and lacking professional industry data reports and other written content. BateAt present, Chinese domestic remanufacturing also pays high attention to batteries, and there are great calls for in-depth research in this aspect. What is the difference between battery remanufacturing technology and the remanufacturing of traditional mechanical products? Hopefully, the industry will produce some consensus voice soon.

What must the focus on battery remanufacturing be?
One of the existing solutions to battery reuse is Echelon Utilization, which is mainly used for energy storage and backup power supply. It works like, batteries retired from vehicles can be used for other scenarios. When we talk about car battery remanufacturing, there is an assumption that the remanufactured battery will still be used in the vehicle. Of course, it can be allowed to reduce the battery capacity to a certain extent on the premise of ensuring the same safety, and transfer from long-mileage battery vehicles to short-distance vehicles; Or for long-life batteries, after remanufacturing its service life is reduced, but still achieve a certain efficiency.

Indispensable models for battery remanufacturing
Remanufacturing requires the involvement of battery manufacturers and, by extension, OEMs. Now a lot of remanufacturing is done by third parties. Without the corresponding authorization and technical support, it is very difficult to complete the task of battery remanufacturing independently. The main body of battery remanufacturing will inevitably be traced back to the battery manufacturer.

Rematec Amsterdam will be held from June 27 to 29 at RAI Amsterdam in the Netherlands. This trade event will feature special sections such as the Battery Corner and an OEM Pavilion to promote more exchanges and connections between the industrial chain.
