Accurec spends appr. 10% of its yearly turnover to improve their exisiting processes, and find answers for unsolved recycling challenges.

One of our current targets is to develop innovative and cost efficient recycling technologies for Hybrid- and EV-batteries, and thus supporting the green recycling strategy of automotive industry in a very early stage. Car battery modules are a complex system of battery cells, control systems, plastic, metallic compounds, liquides, etc. To find contemporary solutions, which meet commercial and legal requirements, the entire process chain until its final end product has be investigated and optimized. Wide knowlege across various fields of expertise (pyro- and hydrometallurgy, mechanical treatment, sensor technology, etc.) are requested. Thus, Accurec is continiuosly expanding it´s scientific network with research facilites. At the present, we conduct following main projects:


« EcoBatRec - Pilot plant to recycle Li-Ion batteries from automotive applications »

cooperating university: IME Institute for metallurgical process technology and metal recycling, Aachen

funding entity: BMU federal ministry of environment, Berlin


« PhotoRec - recovery of strategic (In, Te, Ga) metals from thin-film Photovoltaic-Solar panels »

cooperating university: IME Institute for metallurgical process technology and metal recycling, Aachen

cooperating SME: Fricke&Mallah GmbH, DE - Peine

With installation of our new Krefeld facility, Accurec already invests in europas first dedicated PV Solar-Panel recycling facility (for Si-Wafer based Panels). Photorec is a complementary initiative to find effective recycling solutions for Thin-Film Panels like CIS or CdTe-type. For all of these Panel-types, significant yearly waste tonnages are expected - without having any dedicated recyling solution today.
