According to the European Union’s programmes, companies will have to provide detailed data about the batteries they manufacture or sell starting from 2027. Aras, company that supplies low-code platforms, has informed that in the next future the whole lifecycle of big batteries, like those installed in electric cars, will be filed in digital form. The new passport by the European Union (EU) of batteries is a legal requisite that also constitutes an opportunity to manage data, in order to analyse and assess fully the constant flow of information, starting from the mining of raw materials and up to the use and recycling, so creating more innovative products and more efficient value chains.
«Batteries, with a planned service life of about 20 years for bigger ones, generate big quantities of data, which cover the extraction of raw materials, the production, various use options and the final recycling possibilities. Upon initiative of the EU, in the future these data will have to be filed. After about ten years, the batteries of electric cars reach the end of their first life. However, with slight modifications, batteries might have a second life. They might be used, for instance, as charge stations for electric cars or as storage systems for solar plants for private use. So, extending their service life, these batteries might be useful for 20 years before being dismantled and reused as part of a recycling strategy», stated Luigi Salerno, Country Manager of Aras Italia.
