Ministry of Industry The Department of Primary Industries and Mines (DNP) has prepared to support the management of used electric vehicle batteries that will increase in volume. It has been successful in developing technology to manage fully used electric vehicle batteries, both reuse and recycle by using cells (cells) and modules (modules) in the battery that are still highly efficient. King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) has developed a technology to be used as a source of energy (Second Life EV Batteries) for small electric vehicles. and buildings, houses, offices or factories Including developing a prototype electric golf cart. electric moped electric motorcycle conversions (EV conversions) and uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) that use batteries from used electric vehicle batteries.
The test results are expected The battery will last at least 8 years, or similar to the life of a new battery in an existing electric vehicle. for the battery that cannot be reused. The DEP has collaborated with Suranaree University of Technology (SUT) to develop recycling technology that can separate the extraction of lithium and cobalt. This is a raw material that the European Union (EU) is classified as a material that is very important or Critical Raw Materials (CRM). Including developing a prototype lithium-ion battery that uses lithium obtained from the battery recycling as a starting material for battery production. In which the aforementioned work of both technologies is the first success in Thailand.
Mr. Nirun Yingmahisaranon Director-General of the Department of Primary Industries and Mines (DDP) said that DDP has continuously promoted, developed and transferred innovation and technology to entrepreneurs. by this work It is a collaboration between the DDP. electricity in the future It is also an important answer for promoting and developing the electric vehicle battery industry in the future.
