ARN’s battery collection and processing system
Batteries come in all shapes and sizes. Batteries with a positive residual value (lead batteries and NiMH batteries) can often be reused. ARN is responsible for collecting and processing drive batteries with a negative residual value (Lithium-ion batteries). ARN bought special battery boxes developed for batteries that are unsafe for transport. The car dismantling companies are given advice on the best way to handle these batteries.
Training and courses
The car recycling industry is changing rapidly and that constantly demands new skills. ARN therefore organises training and courses for businesses and staff at car dismantling companies, shredder companies and other processors. ARN provides training courses on dismantling electric cars.
Legislation on car recycling and processing waste materials also changes regularly. It is important that all chain partners are aware of these changes. ARN therefore organises courses when needed and provides information resources.
Research into optimum car recycling
Car recycling keeps going further thanks to innovations; and with increasingly better results. That is also thanks in part to continuous research. For example, into the question of how recycling of a specific substance can be improved, or how CO2 emissions can be limited as far as possible. ARN itself also conducts research in the PST Plant in Tiel and also collaborates with various research institutes.
