An important conference on the role of batteries in the energy transition was held in Rome at the ENEL auditorium in Viale Regina Margherita on June, 25th.
Important technical experts in the field participated in the event.
Prof. Pagnanelli presented the objectives and results achieved to date in the Life LiBat project.
The LIBAT project aims at the pilot-scale demonstration of an innovative process for the recycling of primary lithium batteries (Li (0) / MnO2 batteries). The proposed process integrates a mechanical pre-treatment with a hydrometallurgical treatment in order to recover plastic materials, ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals. The project will allow to increase and reach a recycling percentage greater than 50%.
The Going Green - CARE INNOVATION 2018 conference and exhibition on Electronics and the Environment took place in Schoenbrunn Palace Conference Centre Vienna (Austria). This Symposium is the only platform for presenting the up-to-date progress on sustainable development and the development of eco-efficient electr(on)ic & automotive products.
On 19-20 October 2017, the first meeting of the LiBat project partners took place in Colico, at the SEVAL site. The main points of the meeting were:
- Project objectives
- Environmental problem
- Great technological challenges
- The proposed process
- Quantified results of the project
- Long-term goals: industrial application and replicability
- Implementation of project actions
