First batch of e-bus batteries in Shenzhen decommissioned

Batteries from the first 200 pure e-buses which were commissioned by BYD in Shenzhen in 2011 have been decommissioned. The batteries, over 700 tonnes of LFP packs with a nominal capacity of 324 kWh, will be assessed for second life by the Shenzhen-based recycler Ruicycle. Cells and modules which are not fit for purpose will be recycled by Ruicycle.

With as much as 8 years in service and with one charge per day the batteries may have been cycled over 2,000 times.
