How to recycle new energy vehicle power batteries and reduce hazards, our province intends to give guidance and regulate from the aspects of producer responsibility, step utilization, and information supervision.

Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China issued a draft of "Guiding Opinions on Further Recycling of New Energy Vehicle Power Batteries" (hereinafter referred to as the "Guiding Opinions") and proposed the establishment of a complete power battery supervision and recycling network to ensure waste power batteries Enter the formal recycling channel safely and effectively; build a batch of power battery step-up demonstration projects, explore the establishment of a power battery step-use trading platform, and form a more mature recycling industry chain development model. Power battery use, storage, transportation, recycling, dismantling, Use and other links to standardize and orderly.

The "Guiding Opinions" proposed that relevant enterprises should build a power battery traceability management system. Strict implementation of national regulations on traceability management, establishment of traceability information verification and supervision mechanisms, and establishment of a punishment system for failure to perform traceability management responsibilities.
