Battery recycling and e-mobility: Creating sustainability
Driven by e-mobility the required number of lithium-ion batteries will be multiplying in the next few years. We discuss challenges and opportunities in connection with battery recycling and how battery recycling can become a key strategy not only for disposing of spent batteries but also for sourcing valuable base materials.
The digital twin is the precise virtual model of a product or a production plant. It displays their development throughout the entire lifecycle and allows operators to predict behavior, optimizing performance, and implement insights from previous design and production experiences.
Our comprehensive concept of the digital twin consists of three forms: the digital twin of the product, the digital twin of production, and the digital twin of the performance of both product and production. Thanks to our comprehensive domain expertise and optimized tools, Siemens is the only company that offers this holistic approach.
Virtualization improves the real batteries
The digital twin of the product integrates all technical domains in a single data model.
These data allow to simulate, test, and optimize the battery and its performance in a completely virtual environment. Possible problems and failures can be identified and fixed before the battery is being built in the real world. Consistent data is also the foundation for parallelizing the work of different disciplines like research, design, and mechanics.

An entire plant optimized in one go
Just like batteries, are designed and tested digitally before production the entire production process and machine line is planned, simulated, and optimized in a fully virtual environment with the help of its digital twin.
An entire suite of software from Siemens is available to cover the process from graphic modelling all the way to virtual commissioning and even to line monitoring.

Data-driven production and product performance optimization
Today’s batteries as well as their production generate massive amounts of data in terms of product utilization and effectiveness. A digital twin of performance embraces these operational data and analyzes them to improve all virtual models continually. It also provides actionable insight for informed decision making in the real world.
Leveraging these abilities in battery production helps enterprises improve their products and production systems efficiently and even create new business opportunities based on precise insights into aggregated and analyzed operational data.
