SAE - J2984
(R) Chemical Identification of Transportation Batteries for Recycling
|Publication Date:||1 September 2021|
The chemistry identification system is intended to support the proper and efficient recycling of rechargeable battery systems used in transportation applications with a maximum voltage greater than or equal to 12 V. These applications include propulsion, starting/lighting/ig
A simple common identifier can enable consumers, service, and waste management personnel to direct unidentifed battery types to appropriate recyclers. Recyclers also benefit from this identifier as it allows them to segregate, screen for potential contamination to existing process streams, and identify the responsible organization so they may contact them to find detailed information about the battery to ensure proper and safer recycling.
This SAE Recommended Practice is not intended to replace regulatory reporting requirements nor provide intricate details of the battery system's chemistry. The method and specific location for applying the identifier is not defined in this SAE Recommended Practice. For applicable battery labeling practices, refer to SAE J2936.
