The sales of battery-electric and plug-in hybrid cars tipped over the two-million mark for the first time in 2019. Now, projections suggest that the electric vehicle market will reach 233.9 million units by 2027, at a CAGR of 21.7%.
This growth is mainly attributed to factors such as government policies promoting the adoption of electric vehicles. Meanwhile, leading automotive OEMs are increasing investment and rising environmental concerns are driving demand. Equally, the decreasing price of ion lithium batteries is allowing the industry to scale up rapidly.
As with any industry, exponential growth like this impacts the entire supply chain. Therefore, to sustain this growth, the electric car industry needs reliable, large-scale solutions for the production, transport, and storage of lithium batteries. Furthermore, as the sector grows, we need suitable equipment for the recycling and decommissioning of ion lithium batteries.
THIELMANN is the trusted partner the industry requires. Considering the volatile, sensitive nature of the materials needed to produce ion lithium batteries, stainless steel is the only choice. Providing a fully inert environment, stainless steel containers ensure the product remains pure. Meanwhile, THIELMANN engineering ensures these hazardous substances are handled safely and securely, in full compliance with current regulations and OEL obligations.
Finally, when a battery comes to the end of its life, THIELMANN provides the secure, fully accredited solutions you need to recycle or dispose of spent batteries. Whether the unit is hazardous or recyclable, THIELMANN ensures that the sustainability and safety at the core of the electric car industry are maintained throughout the supply chain.
