Driven by market dividends and favorable policies, the number of new energy vehicles in China has been increasing. According to SPIR statistics, from January to December 2018, a total of 1.22 million new energy vehicles were produced in China, a year-on-year increase of 54.4%, of which 198,500 were pure electric vehicles, a year-on-year increase of 12.8%.
However, while solving the shortage of petroleum resources, new energy vehicles also bring new problems: how to deal with scrapped power batteries? Therefore, strengthening the recycling of power batteries is of great significance.
On January 16th, Skyrim Motor and Huayou Cycle signed a strategic cooperation agreement. Both parties will continue to deepen cooperation in the fields of new energy vehicle power battery use and material recycling.
Since last year, examples of car battery and battery factory group deployment of power battery recycling have continued to emerge.
On January 4, 2018, China Tower and 16 companies including Changan Automobile, BYD, Yinlong, and Guoxuan Hi-Tech held a signing ceremony for a new energy power battery recycling partnership agreement; subsequently, on October 31, 2018, China Iron Tower has signed letters of intent for the construction of power battery recycling system with 11 new energy automobile manufacturers including FAW, Dongfeng and BYD.
On January 6, 2018, Dongfang Seiko announced that Beijing Pride, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, signed a "strategic cooperation framework agreement" with BAIC, Ningde Times, and Peking University, which aims to carry out research and development, manufacturing, recycling, and cascade utilization of power batteries And other strategic cooperation.
On November 12, 2018, Guanghua Technology and Beijing Beiqi Penglong Automobile, a subsidiary of BAIC, signed a Strategic Cooperation Framework Agreement on Retired Power Battery Recycling and Other Fields. Cooperating in business; On November 19 and November 20, 2018, Guanghua Technology and Nanjing Jinlong Automobile and Guangxi Huaao Automobile respectively signed a "Strategic Cooperation Agreement on Waste Power Battery Recycling and Disposal". Both parties will Cooperation in the field.
On January 17, 2019, Penghui Energy, a lithium battery manufacturer, announced that it will provide SAIC-GM-Wuling with power battery products and a step-by-step recycling service for used batteries.
In fact, battery recycling is not only the focus of attention in the Chinese market, but foreign companies have also been deployed.
The rise of any industry is inseparable from the strong support of policies. On August 1, 2018, the "Interim Measures for the Management of Recycling and Utilization of Power Battery for New Energy Vehicles" was formally implemented, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will update the information of the new energy vehicle power battery recycling service outlets quarterly.
This signifies that China's new energy power battery recycling has really entered the implementation stage. Usually, after the national policy is set, local policies will follow closely behind.
On December 18, 2018, the “Implementation Plan for the Pilot Implementation of Recycling and Recycling of New Energy Vehicle Power Batteries in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Region” was released. The plan plans to basically establish a standardized, orderly, efficient, and sustainable recycling system by 2020 in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. And a market-oriented development atmosphere of fair competition and order.
