Chemical Identification of Transportation Batteries for Recycling
The chemistry identification system is intended to support the proper and efficient recycling of rechargeable battery systems used in transportation applications with a maximum voltage greater than or equal to 12 V. These applications include propulsion, starting/lighting/ignition, and providing power to other vehicle equipment. Other battery systems such as non-rechargeable batteries, batteries in electronics, and telecom/utility batteries are not considered in the development of this specification. This does not preclude these systems from adapting the format proposed if they so choose.
Electrification of the transportation industry is increasing rapidly, with a corresponding increase in the use of battery systems. Furthermore, battery systems can consist of various chemistries that are dependent on design objectives. A chemistry identification system can assist in proper recycling as these battery systems reach their end of life. Because battery systems can be installed in products that may be available in various countries, the harmonization of chemistry identification systems worldwide is beneficial. This document provides a general chemistry identification system that is consistent with other international systems.
