Lithium-Ion Batteries Safely Recycled Using a New Process
The recycling of lithium-ion batteries increasingly involves major challenges. BHS-Sonthofen has developed a new process through various research projects, which is being used for the first time in Scandinavia: A completely gas-tight process reliably prevents fires and the escape of toxic gases.
BHS-Sonthofen’s mixing technology used to modernize the Afsluitdijk in the Netherlands
The Netherlands is protected from flooding by a 32 km long dam: the Afsluitsdijk. This impressive structure – the total area of which is around 700,000 square meters – is in the process of being completely modernized and expanded. For this purpose, innovative concrete blocks from Holcim Coastal B.V. are being used. To ensure the blocks are of an equally high quality, they opted for strong partners in terms of mixing technology and plant engineering: BHS-Sonthofen and Loke BV. BHS is delivering the mixer for the expansion of the production facility in Alphen aan den Rijn, where the concrete for the project is to be mixed. Loke BV took over the construction of the plant.
Indian company uses BHS Biogrinder to process rice straw
At its biogas plant near Chandigarh in the state of Punjab, the Indian company Source Facility uses a BHS Biogrinder to process paddy straw, coconut shells and other organic waste materials. The Biogrinder works for multiple feed materials and allows for an efficient biogas production process.
BHS-Sonthofen launches a new version of the Biogrinder on the market
BHS-Sonthofen has launched a new, completely redesigned version of the successful Biogrinder on the market. The Biogrinder is used in biomass processing, where it ensures that biogas is generated efficiently and production is accelerated. The machine is now fitted with a disk rotor and stainless-steel components, making it stand out thanks to its improved durability and flexibility.
New Area Sales Manager in the Recycling & Environment business
Ulrich Kanzleiter has been new Area Sales Manager in the Recycling & Environment business since 1 June 2020. His focus is on Eastern Europe, Austria and the Benelux countries.
New process from BHS avoids hazards in recycling of lithium-ion batteries
While the relevance of batteries and accumulators as storage media is increasing significantly, their recycling is linked to challenges. BHS-Sonthofen has developed a safe process for the recycling of batteries and accumulators in several research projects. A continuous gas-tight process from the shredder to the dryer, where the electrolytes evaporate, reliably prevents fires and the escape of toxic gases.
