Shanghai (Gasgoo)- The interim administrative regulation on the recycling and reuse of electric vehicle batteries, which was jointly issued by seven government departments including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) on Feb. 26, will go into force on Aug. 1.
According to the regulation, automobile manufacturers are responsible for the recycling of NEV batteries. As such, carmakers have begun mapping out their battery recycling businesses. Some of them have chosen to partner with other industrial players to promote the development of battery recycling and reuse in China.
Specifically, 16 car and battery companies including Changan and BYD, formed partnership with China Tower, an industrial giant in battery recycling and reuse sector, on Jan. 4, aiming to tackle the recycling and reuse problems of disused batteries. In March, SAIC Group signed a strategic memorandum of understanding (MoU), planning to deepen cooperation in the battery recycling and reuse of electric vehicles.
In general, the battery recycling and reuse industry is still at the nascent stage. Although a few automakers have carried out their deployment in this sector, the market scale and the battery treatment technology still need improving.
According to Cui Dongshu, secretary-general of the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA), key technologies including the evaluation for remnants of disused battery are not mature. Moreover, gradient utilizing as well as recycling and reusing technologies still lag behind. Therefore, industrial experts need to cooperate closely to promote technological innovation and application, as well as develop new technologies.
