HYBRID BATTERY REMANUFACTURING EXCHANGE PROGRAM LAUNCHED
The new program has been introduced to the market by Injectronics
Injectronics’ new hybrid battery remanufacturing exchange project will deliver a scalable component re-use and resource recovery program of retired battery packs from hybrid-electric vehicles.
Part of IM Group, Injectronics says it is Australasia’s leading supplier of quality new and remanufactured automotive electronic components, as well as the preferred repairer of electronic and mechatronic parts.
A hybrid battery has often been seen as a single use part, but Injectronics says its ability to remanufacture battery packs that are faulty, slow to charge or no longer performing at an effective level has created a circular economy that will maintain battery life long after manufacturer warranties have lapsed.
Supported by the Federal Government’s Automotive Innovation Lab Access Grants program – a key element of the Government’s $100million Advanced Manufacturing Fund – the initiative prevents batteries, plus its toxic materials, from being discarded into landfill.
Once available to market, Injectronics says it is envisaged that the cost of a remanufactured battery for the end consumer will be between 60 and 80 percent less than a new unit – with the company saying its project will offer considerable environmental advantages as well as cost savings down the line.
In preparation for the project start – which is expected in the next several months – Injectronics will have a bank of remanufactured hybrid battery packs ready for exchange as required.
The hybrid battery exchange project works in conjunction with automotive workshops. For the full story, click here.
