Tech & Science Battery Recycling Inquired - Survey: Sustainability Necessary
Deliveroo reduces losses as takeaway sales soar
International takeaway food app Deliveroo cut losses in the first half as the coronavirus pandemic boosted home deliveries, a results update showed Wednesday. The British group, which had a poor stock market launch in March, said net losses narrowed to £108.7 million ($151.4 million, 127.7 million euros) from £126.2 million in the first six months of last year. Despite revenue soaring 82 percent to £922.5 million, Deliveroo's costs have jumpedThe British group, which had a poor stock market launch in March, said net losses narrowed to £108.7 million ($151.4 million, 127.7 million euros) from £126.2 million in the first six months of last year.
The highest possible recycling content in batteries could become the co-explanatory factor for the market breakthrough of electric cars in the coming years. This suggests experts and results of a survey.
"We have to see the battery as part of a closed circulatory process," said Matthias Ullrich from the Electrical and Electronics Development of Volkswagen at a conference in Braunschweig. The Group examines in a pilot plant in Salzgitter, how the multiple utilization of the cell modules, but also of substances from the battery case such as aluminum, copper or plastics can be implemented industrially.
Searching for sustainability in the face of environmental racism
In the face of environmental racism, sustainability isn’t about what you buy.As I grew older and learned that the issues were more complicated than that, I felt ashamed. There were more “rules” than I thought, and it seemed like everything I had been doing was wasteful. I grew up with a large box of straws in the back of my kitchen cupboard, which I later learned could harm sea turtles.
Still still a test mode - in the medium term, a large-scale battery recycling should arise. The aim is to achieve a recycling rate of 95 percent, so Ullrich: "We will have tons of material that comes back from the cars.»
The Swedish mining company EUROBATERY minerals, which wants to gain battery stocks reinforced in Europe, presented a representative survey of the opinion research institute YOUGOV. Thus, sustainable production of e-auto batteries will also be an increasingly important criterion for many consumers. Of those respondents, which consider the purchase or leasing of an E- or hybrid car, increased more than half (56 percent) that they are important or very important to them as little environmentally polluting promotion of battery raw materials, including good working conditions. 35 percent declared that they would accept higher prices for E vehicles, "if they can be sure that minerals and metals of the battery were sustainably produced».

VW, Daimler and Opel want to build their own cell mills, BMW continues to sit on external suppliers for the time being. In order to actually large CO2 savings through e-mobility are possible, more eco-electricity must be provided. In addition, the recovery of battery resources such as lithium, cobalt, copper or nickel has to be gentle. "Conflict minerals" from crisis areas, where the social conditions of degradation are partly dramatic, the plans of various car manufacturers should be avoided - this is also one of the core objectives of the new supply chain law.
The Chief of the Battery Cells and Systems Business Unit at VW, Frank Blome, said the current raw material reference: "So far, this is above all under the control of our suppliers. But we participate strongly. And we want to make sure everything is rule-compliant. " The solids battery, in whose development VW has teamed up with the US company QuantumScape, will need a while for technical maturity and large numbers for a while; "But we continue to invest. We believe that the solid cell will eventually get more between 2025 and 2030. "
