YOU CREATE .WE RECYCLE
 
 
Under what circumstances do we recycle hybrid/electric vehicle batteries ?
 

Eco-design :
upstream, from the design of the prototypes

Battery and car manufacturers call on SNAM so that from the battery designing stage, recycling problems that the use of certain substances might induce, are taken into consideration. Through the identification of components, indications can be given on the future recycling costs related to the end of life of these batteries.

Production waste :
manufacturing, mounting or assembly defects in car factories

Production waste :

When batteries are manufactured, processing is required for certain waste. The same goes for batteries that have been subject to blows during different behaviour (reaction to temperature) or stress tests (crash-tests). SNAM can be called on to process:
- manufacturing waste
- products that do not meet quality criteria
- tested products

Guarantee :
Batteries are recycled under guarantee replacement

Guarantee :
close
Although products that are put on the market are tried and tested, some of them still have defects which manifest subsequently during use by the customer. They are replaced in the framework of the guarantee period which varies from one manufacturer to another.

Accident vehicles :
batteries become unusable or dangerous for further use

Accident vehicles :

Following a road accident, a battery can become defective and stop propelling the vehicle. The vehicle itself can become unusable. SNAM can collect damaged batteries from ELV (End-of-Life Vehicle) centres and recycle them.

End-of-life batteries :
batteries no longer satisfy requirements related to vehicle driving

To find out more
End-of-life batteries :
close
Batteries become unusable over time - charging and discharging cycles have noticeably decreased the capacity of the battery or the cells of which it is comprised. The vehicle itself might be at the end of life.

Vehicle dismantling centres can contact SNAM for battery removal. contact
