The evolution of EV battery enclosures: balancing optimisation, safety and cost-effectiveness

2023-08-16T15:51:00+01:00By Martin Kahl

The battery enclosures used in the first wave of EVs to hit the market after 2010 were designed to be sealed firmly shut. This took to an extreme the need to be impenetrable, crash proof, fireproof, waterproof and tamper-proof and resulted in mostly irreparable batteries and recycling processes that frequently require people in protective clothing using crow bars to prise open the enclosures protecting these very heavy, high-voltage machines. But technologies and production strategies are fast-evolving.

The primary objective of the collaboration is to promote the recycling of steel scrap and drive the production of low CO2-emissions products containing high scrap content on a commercial scale
