Used Battery Collection and Recycling Excerpt :

This book covers all aspects of spent battery collection and recycling. First of all, the legislative and regulatory updates are addressed and the main institutions and programs worldwide are mentioned. An overview of the existing battery systems, of the chemicals used in them and their hazardous properties is made, followed by a survey of the major industrial recycling processes. The safety and efficiency of such processes are stressed. Particular consideration is given to the released emissions, i.e. to the impact on human health and the environment. Methods for the evaluation of this impact are described. Several chapters deal with specific battery chemistries: lead-acid, nickel-cadmium and nickel-metal hydride, zinc (carbon and alkaline), lithium and lithium-ion. For each type of battery, details are provided on the collection/recycling process from the technical, economic and environmental viewpoint. The chemicals recoverable from each process and remarketable are mentioned. A chapter deals with recovering of the large batteries powering electric vehicles, e.g. lead-acid, nickel-metal hydride and lithium-ion. The final chapter is devoted to the important topic of collecting batteries from used electrical and electronic equipment. The uncontrolled disposal of these devices still containing their batteries contributes to environmental pollution.

Electrochemical Power Sources Fundamentals Systems and Applications Excerpt :

Safety of Lithium Batteries describes how best to assure safety during all phases of the life of Lithium ion batteries (production, transport, use, and disposal). About 5 billion Li-ion cells are produced each year, predominantly for use in consumer electronics. This book describes how the high-energy density and outstanding performance of Li-ion batteries will result in a large increase in the production of Li-ion cells for electric drive train vehicle (xEV) and battery energy storage (BES or EES) purposes. The high-energy density of Li battery systems comes with special hazards related to the materials employed in these systems. The manufacturers of cells and batteries have strongly reduced the hazard probability by a number of measures. However, absolute safety of the Li system is not given as multiple incidents in consumer electronics have shown. Presents the relationship between chemical and structure material properties and cell safety Relates cell and battery design to safety as well as system operation parameters to safety Outlines the influences of abuses on safety and the relationship to battery testing Explores the limitations for transport and storage of cells and batteries Includes recycling, disposal and second use of lithium ion batteries

This volume contains the proceedings of the ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on L- guages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems (LCTES 2000), held June 18, 2000, in Vancouver, Canada. Embedded systems have developed consid- ably in the past decade and we expect this technology to become even more important in computer science and engineering in the new millennium. Interest in the workshop has been con rmed by the submission of papers from all over the world. There were 43 submissions representing more than 14 countries. Each submitted paper was reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The expert opinions of many outside reviewers were in- luable in making the selections and ensuring the high quality of the program, for which, we express our sincere gratitude. The nal program features one invited talk, twelve presentations, and ve poster presentations, which re?ect recent - vances in formal systems, compilers, tools, and hardware for embedded systems. We owe a great deal of thanks to the authors, reviewers, and the members of the program committee for making the workshop a success. Special thanks to Jim Larus, the General Chair of PLDI 2000 and Julie Goetz of ACM for all their help and support. Thanks should also be given to Sung-Soo Lim at Seoul National University for his help in coordinating the paper submission and review process. We also thank Professor Gaetano Borriello of the University of Washington for his invited talk on Chinook, a hardware-software co-synthesis CAD tool for embedded systems.
