Recently, the "Electric Vehicle Power Battery Recycling Technology Policy" draft for comment (hereinafter referred to as "Draft for Comment") has been widely discussed in the society, and the focus has also expanded from power batteries to ordinary batteries, mobile phone batteries, laptop batteries and other types of waste. Recycling of the battery. In addition to clarifying the recycling and utilization of electric vehicle waste batteries, the construction of the recycling network is also a highlight. According to regulations, electric vehicle and power battery manufacturers (including importers, the same below) should establish a waste power battery recycling network, and at least one service network in the prefecture-level administrative area with after-sales service outlets (or entrust other agencies with recycling conditions) ) Responsible for the collection of used power batteries. In addition, electric vehicle and power battery manufacturers should also announce to the public the address, contact information and other information of their waste power battery recycling outlets and update them in a timely manner. The recycling value of electric vehicle batteries is high, and the construction of outlets is highly operable. The official release of the “Draft for Comment” will accelerate the recycling of batteries. Compared with electric vehicle batteries, the recycling history of used ordinary batteries, mobile phone batteries, and laptop batteries is more "long", but the problem of recycling disorder has not been significantly improved. Chen, a citizen of Foshan, told reporters, "We all know that used batteries will pollute the environment and will not be littered, but we can't find a battery recycling point. The used batteries that we usually collect can only be placed at home." According to the visit, Foshan area Most of the battery recycling points set up by the government and environmental protection organizations have problems of unsustainable recycling. Only an environmental protection company in Bangpu, Guangdong Province, continues to recycle used batteries for six years. Due to the low coverage of recycling outlets and the small amount of recycling, it is difficult for recycling companies to increase profits through economies of scale; coupled with high processing costs, waste battery recycling has been hailed by industry experts and media as “chicken ribs”, and so far there is no similar The construction requirements and promotion measures for the recycling outlets of the Exposure Draft were issued. As the saying goes, “Everything is difficult at the beginning.” The same is true for waste battery recycling companies. There is no government support in the early stage of industry development, and the development path of enterprises may be more difficult. In the case that the public's awareness of recycling has generally improved, the government should increase investment in the construction of recycling outlets, and set up corresponding management personnel at the outlets to reduce the recycling burden of enterprises to promote the recycling of used batteries.
