Virtual Design for Sustainable Battery Recycling Process

Company case from Finland in the project Sustainable Manufacturing and Engineering.


Company: AkkuSer Ltd, Nivala, Finland

The company was the first in EU to develop a technology that enables recycling of hazardous batteries and accumulators in an sustainable manner. They were European Responsible Care Award Winner for SMEs in 2011  for their patented battery recycling process.


Demonstrations were carried out to show the possibilities of virtual design tools (3DCreate, SolidWorks) in developing and documenting the recycling process. The factory was scanned earlier with Centria’s laser scanner (Leica Scan Station 2).


Demonstrations showed that the available tools for virtual design offer practical solutions for developing and documenting the sustainable battery recycling process.
