New head quarter in Krefeld permitted
PDF Print E-mail

Accurec´s new head quarter in Krefeld - Uerdingen has been permitted August 28th. With generell permission of 60.000 tons of batteries recycled per year, the new permit is going to be the largest in the world. Technical installations will provide a recycling capacity for 4.000 tons of Lithium containing batteries in a first step, mixed batteries sorting, and storage capacity of about 2.000 tons. Buildings are currently under construction to be finalised 1. of March 2016.

 
2 further R&D projects launched.

In each time, Accurec is responsible to identify and develop resource and energy efficient recycling processes for these newly developed battery types.HELIS (http://www.helis-project.eu/)  has been implemented to develop a "high energy lithium sulphur cell and battery", and is based on a previous successful project named Eurolis. 14 partners from all over europe (Fraunhofer/DE, Saft/F, NIC/Slo, PSA/F, etc.) join together a strategic alliance to develop this rechargeable high energy battery, dedicated mainly to automotive applications. On top of this, the novel ALION- project has started on 1d. of Febr. to develop a low-cost, Aluminium based rechargeable Ion battery. With support of spanish (Leitat), german (TU Berlin) and english university competence, and multiple industrial actors (Varta/DE, Solvioni/F, etc.), this consortia is going to cover new energy storage demands in future. Both R&D projects have been supported under umbrella of Horizon 2020 program.based research projects.Beside current R&D projects, Accurec has been integrated in 2 further european


 
EcoBatRec project nearly finalized

the 3,5 year lasting EcoBatRec project is going to be finalized beginning 2016. The outcome is a novel process to recycle automotive Li-Ion batteries at best cost and optimized resource efficiency. It will provide beyond April 2016 a capacity of minimum 600 tons/year automotive battery disassembly and subsequent recycling.




 
CloseWEEE: Joint EU Research Project Has Started
PDF Print E-mail

More than 3 millon tones of waste from electric and electronic products are collected in EU25 every year, and it is foreseen to grow significantly by upcoming mandatory collection and recycling targets. They contain enormous tonnages of secondary raw materials, which are, depending on recycling technology applied, recovered partly at low efficiency. In many cases, industrial metals and critical materials are irrecoverable and dissipative lost. Therefore, CloseWEEE has gathered a competent consortium from 7 EU countries to improve existing technologies and practice. CloseWEEE targets following main topics:

  • increase the recovery yield of WEEE-plastics (PC-ABS and PPE-PS) up to 80%
  • povide high quality plastics and integrate up to 20% in virgin fractions
  • recover up to 80% of BFR (Brominated Flame Retardants) and Antimony
  • improve significantly the recovery yield of Li-Ion battery materials, specifically premium quality graphite, Cobalt, Nickel and Copper

The consortia consists of private or public research institutes, namely Fraunhofer IZM, Fraunhofer IVV, Tecnalia, Gaiker, Exergy and Vertech; Plastic related productive companies: Sitraplas, Argus and TPVision; Information platform provider IFixit and recycling companies Demontagezentrum Wien and Coolrec. Accurec is a dedicated battery recycling and responsible for the improvement of the entire Li-Ion battery recycling technic. The duration of CloseWEEE is 4 years with expectation of first results in 2017.

 
about Accurec

ACCUREC, founded in 1995, is a technology based treatment company to manage secondary raw materials. At its plant in Mülheim/Ruhr, ACCUREC has installed several of its unique and own developed innovative treatment techniques, dedicated to the recycling of used batteries. This european battery recycling center enables ACCUREC to recycle every modern type of industrial and consumer rechargeable battery with the best available technology at zero emission. Moreover Accurec supports customers with professional compliance services (collection, logistics, documentation) for discarded batteries.

Driven by intensive r&d engagement, our metallurgical knowledge leads to new professional treatment areas like recovery of precious metals, solar panel recycling or high end refining of special metals.
