Recovering valuable materials - Safely avoiding hazards during the recycling of lithium-ion batteries

December 2020
BHS-Sonthofen is refining their innovative process for the recycling of spent batteries. It reliably prevents fires and the release of hazardous gases, as the crusher process is kept gas-tight all the way until the dryer, which is where the electrolytes are evaporated. This process is suitable for automobile batteries as well as lithium-ion and other household batteries. The resulting products are ready to be sold.

Recycling gypsum wallboard: Turning construction waste into a chemically-pure resource

November 2020
EU regulations, the reduction in FGD gypsum from lower coal use and increasing construction are among the many reasons that wallboard recycling is becoming more attractive. However, the process needs to be cost-efficient. To this end, BHS-Sonthofen has developed a process that entails two crushing stages. This even makes it possible to recycle any adhering impurities.

New process by BHS-Sonthofen

August 2020
Fossil fuels are being increasingly replaced by other energy sources. Their use requires efficient storage technologies. However, lithium batteries and accumulators are often criticized, because the raw materials used for this technology are produced in an environmentally questionable manner in regions that are considered social hotspots. This makes it all the more important to have efficient and safe processes that allow the raw materials that went into the depleted batteries and accumulators to be returned to the material cycle. Together with its subsidiary AVA, BHS has developed a process that allows for the safe and efficient recycling of lithium-ion accumulators and batteries.
