Recycling Revolution at IFAT Munich

Olfactomics was present in the IFAT Munich recycling trade fair in May 2024. Lithium ion battery recycling is a rapidly growing industry, since exponentially more batteries are coming to their end of life. Safe recycling requires proper handling of the batteries.

Olfactomics provides novel methods for detecting battery electrolytes. These volatiles indicate fractured battery cases and potential fire hazard caused by lithium batteries. As the prominence of battery recycling grows, recycling companies are actively seeking new ways to ensure the safety of their processes and staff.

Stay tuned to hear more about the solutions we have developed to monitor battery leaks in recycling containers and energy storages!
