End-of-life handling

Our experts will take on responsibility for implementing the technical regulations for handling end-of-life vehicles and batteries for you. We will support you in meeting your targets for sustainability and environmental friendliness by focusing on the following areas: 

  • We implement the handling of old batteries (packaging, transportation, recycling / disposal) in your after sales organization.
  • We ensure the implementation of take-back systems for end-of-life vehicles and provide you with information on dismantling and disassembly.

We develop an end-of-life strategy for HV lithium batteries for you which will meet the global requirements worldwide and offers new possibilities through second life concepts.

Reduced disposal costs

Ensuring compliance with the legal requirements of the markets

Remote auditing of the markets

Second life concepts

End-of-life HV vehicle batteries do not need to be immediately recycled. These used HV batteries still have sufficient capacity for stationary applications. We can support you in the development of recycling concepts for reusing batteries, for example in energy storage systems. By remanufacturing replacement parts, you will not only cut costs, but also save energy and raw materials compared to the production of new parts. In this way, you will contribute to a better ecological balance. Our specialists will support you in the following areas:

  • Development of recycling concepts for end-of-life batteries
  • Sustainable packaging solutions
  • Remanufacturing of replacement parts
  • Recycling
  • Ensuring compliance with the legal requirements of the markets
