According to Sven Bauer, CEO & Founder of what today is the biggest e-bike battery supplier in Europe, adding battery recycling to BMZ’s services results in customers that can deal with a single source to meet all their business needs. “From development to construction, hardware and software, cell sourcing and battery returns, the customer can obtain all services throughout the entire supply chain from BMZ.”

BMZ’s after sales services

“Apart from the e-bike battery production BMZ’s after sales services include long warranty periods, long replacement part availability, batteries that can be borrowed, and now also battery recycling. BMZ’s Central Service department offers customers access to battery disposal and recycling experts by telephone and by mail,” explains Sven Bauer.

Raw materials recycling

BMZ GmbH has been working with the European Recycling Platform for many years to secure valuable materials for the future. Each battery has a limited life span, which means they become unusable after a certain time period and must be disposed of. Most types of batteries contain poisonous heavy metals such as nickel, cadmium, or mercury. All of these heavy metals can be reclaimed and reused. Recycling means saving valuable raw materials and energy, saving limited space, securing a healthy environment and a better quality of living, and reducing health hazards for now and for future generations.
