Volkswagen Group France arranges for recycling of hybrid and EV batteries

Volkswagen Group France has signed a partnership agreement with the Société Nouvelle d’Affinage des Métaux (SNAM) that covers recycling of hybrid and EV batteries from the group’s brands – VW, Audi, SEAT and Škoda.

SNAM (a subsidiary of the Floridienne Group) will be responsible for collecting both NiMH and Li-ion batteries from electric and hybrid vehicles, and dismantling and recycling them in its two French factories, in compliance with European environmental standards. Volkswagen and SNAM have established a program to ensure the traceability of batteries until the recycling system is fully in place.

The collection and recycling of industrial batteries in Europe are regulated by the European Directive 2006/66/EC, which took effect in 2006.

In September, SNAM signed a similar agreement with Honda for the recycling of batteries from its hybrid vehicles in Europe.
