China launched an integrated traceability management platform for batteries of new-energy vehicles (NEVs)

 

Given the huge amount of production, battery recycling in China has become a problem. To solve this problem, China has launched an integrated traceability management platform for batteries of new-energy vehicles (NEVs).

Statistics indicate that China has now produced more than 2.1 million NEVs and, according to experts, this project will help promote recycling of numerous batteries in China.

 

China is the world’s largest producer and consumer of batteries of new-energy vehicles (NEVs)

 

This need also arises from the fact that improper battery disposal not only damages the environment, but is also a potential security risk. Xin Guobin, Vice Minister of China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), said that the implementing traceability management is a major measure to achieve recycling of these batteries.

 

The provinces selected for the pilot project are Beijing, Tianjin, Shanxi, Shanghai and Guangdong

 

Another important feature of this project is the fact that the platform will also help to confirm the responsibilities of users in the recycling process.

The ministry also issued a temporary provision on traceability management of the batteries and Xin disclosed that the ministry will take further supporting measures to encourage battery recycling.
