1.1 Scope of the study and definition

Batteries, accumulators and batteries allow the conservation and restoration of electrical energy . More precisely, accumulators are systems designed to store energy. A battery is a set of electric accumulators (or cells) that allow the desired level of energy to be restored. An electric battery is actually a one-piece battery

Most of the batteries and accumulators ("PA") we use today are based on a electrochemical oxidation-reduction process - a chemical reaction during which an electron transfer occurs. The first battery was invented in 1800 by Volta.

The European Directive 2006/66/EC on batteries and accumulators defines three types of batteries and accumulators:

  • The "Mobile PAs" are batteries, button cells, battery assemblies or accumulators, sealed and capable of being carried by hand.
  • The "PA automobiles" are those intended to supply a starting, lighting or automotive ignition system.
  • The "Industrial PAs" are designed for industrial or professional purposes, or used in electric vehicles.

The world production is largely dominated by Asian giants and more particularly China

The the number of IPs placed on the French market has continued to increase between 2009 and 2017 . More than 90% are "portable PAs" but it is the batteries for industry and the automotive industry that drive the market in terms of tonnages (volumes) produced

L' the challenge of energy storage is key to the energy transition a real growth driver for the coming years. It should also be noted that users of batteries and accumulators are becoming increasingly sensitive to the ecological issue and the need to protect the environment importance of recycling (46.8% in 2018)

The organic waste recycling market - France

Publicado en 10/03/2022 by Rose Marie Carvennec - Eiffage

"I find this study synthetic and to the point. However, a more detailed section on the development trends in the sector with the emergence of biomass, CSR, etc. would be welcome Finally, I am surprised by the absence of VEOLIA in the actors section
