Parts maker Gestamp has joined the Catena-X digital platform to advance its circular economy and technological innovation
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.
