Reneos, new European collecting platform for EV batteries
Several European organizations specialized in collecting used lithium-ion batteries have joined forces and created Reneos. A European platform to collect, recycle and reuse batteries of hybrid and electric cars, buses, trucks, forklift trucks, cranes, boats, e-bikes, home batteries, etc.
Reneos is an initiative of Europe’s top national battery collection systems and offers a full range of services for the safe processing of end-of-life industrial batteries. These services conclude legal compliance, collection, transport, storage, dismantling, second-life applications, and recycling across Europe.
Reneos’ initiators are Bebat (Belgium), Stibat (the Netherlands), GRS Batterien Service GmbH (Germany), Cobat (Italy), and BatteriRetur (Norway). The platform is used by car manufacturers and dealers, transport and dismantling companies, and recyclers.
With the advent of the electric car, battery use is on the rise, and so will be the demand for a sustainable solution for end-of-life batteries. That is why several European battery collectors joined forces and created Reneos.
100% electric motorcycles
Zero Motorcycles, an American company created in 2006 by a former Nasa engineer, produces 100% electric motorcycles. The company has dealers in many European countries (Benelux, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, the Czech Republic, Norway, and Sweden) and already uses Reneos’ services.
Thanks to Reneos’ national embedment, the batteries in those countries will be picked up, transported, and processed according to the respective legislation and safety regulations, according to a Belga press release.
