The concept of "Internet +" has been the focus of attention of the whole people since it was proposed by Premier Li Keqiang at the beginning of the year. At the same time, it has also set off a storm of exploration for "Internet +" in all walks of life. When the recycling of used batteries meets the "Internet +", can you get out of a broader development path? As an essential accessory for electronic products, the emergence of batteries has brought great convenience to people's lives. Today, the annual waste of batteries has reached 950,000 tons, causing tremendous pressure on the environment. Due to the high cost of recycling, weak recycling awareness, lack of financial support and other objective factors, the progress of recycling of used batteries in China is not satisfactory. With the advancement of Internet technology, the Internet has penetrated into all aspects of life, and the "Internet +" express trains have been rapidly developed in commerce, finance, communications, transportation, tourism, and education. Then, can the recycling of used batteries be combined with the "Internet +" approach to increase the enthusiasm of the whole people and promote the development of battery recycling? A mature Internet garbage recycling business model has emerged abroad, which can be used for recycling used batteries. The “recycling bank”, the largest garbage recycling company in the United States, obtained financial support from the government in the early stage as a project start-up fund, and paid for the garbage recycling. Spend money to buy garbage from residents, so that residents can develop the habit of sorting garbage and put the garbage in the designated trash can. At the same time, the “Recycling Bank” recycling and sorting garbage high-tech system automatically identifies and records the data of residents. Each household delivers 10 pounds of recyclable waste, and the “Renewable Bank” will transfer $5 to a bank card specifically for residents. This card cannot withdraw cash, but can be used to spend money at WholeFoods. WholeFoods can make profits from the consumption of cardholders, and “renewable banks” can be divided into 30%. In addition, “Renewable Banks” can also earn profits by selling the garbage received every day, plus government subsidies to maintain the entire system. More than enough to run. “Renewable Bank” not only realizes the recycling of garbage, but also reduces environmental pollution and waste of resources. Its innovative business model also makes it profitable. The battery contains metals such as lead, copper, lithium, zinc, manganese, cadmium, nickel and cobalt, and has a high recovery value. In addition, the annual scrap of used batteries is huge and is increasing year by year. It is therefore expected that the waste battery recycling industry will have a huge prospect. According to the data, China's battery recycling rate is only 2%, which is one of the countries with the lowest recycling rate of used batteries in the world. How to realize the recycling and reuse of used batteries and reduce resource waste and environmental pollution through mode innovation is extremely urgent.
