The RECIBIL project, on which RMD has embarked, consists of the development of new techniques for the reuse and recycling of lithium-ion batteries from electric vehicles. This is due to the increased circularity of electric and hybrid vehicle batteries, making it essential to develop new protocols to give second-life batteries a new use.
This project promotes and increases the circularity of hybrid and electric vehicle batteries and develops new protocols for identifying uses, through life cycle analysis, for second-life batteries. RECIBIL aims to help the different agents (car manufacturers, battery users, recycling companies, etc.) in the end-of-life management process of the electric vehicle fleet, which is planned to be deployed at a European level and worldwide in the coming years, as well as in all recycling and recovery operations.
RMD, thanks to the great experience acquired in waste management, is key to the start and end of the development of the newly proposed solution, as well as for the recovery of the components and majority of products present in the batteries.
The innovations promoted by the project will be validated in a plant in Melilla. The first of these characteristics which allows the integration of second-life batteries in an electrical production plant to support the stability of the autonomous city’s electrical system.
RECIBIL has a consortium formed by RMD, Endesa Generación, which leads the project, together with the company Eurecat.
The project is funded through the COLLABORATION CHALLENGES 2019 call (Centre for Technological and Industrial Development) and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
