Aluminum has been widely used in new energy vehicles in recent years due to its superior economy, excellent lightweight structure and good thermal conductivity. The main products include power battery shells, battery covers, battery side panels, automotive water-cooling plates, battery aluminum trays, etc. The application of aluminum alloys is of great significance for achieving lightweight development of car bodies and extending battery life.
At present, my country’s lithium-ion battery products are mainly exported to Europe. In terms of trade volume, Europe has become the largest export destination for my country’s lithium-ion battery products. According to the latest revised draft of the proposal, all power batteries and industrial batteries with a capacity of more than 2KWh put on the European market must be accompanied by a carbon footprint statement, followed by a carbon footprint level label, and finally must meet the EU battery carbon footprint access threshold. The EU’s new battery law puts forward new requirements for the export of my country’s lithium-ion battery products, which will help my country improve its carbon footprint standards for lithium-ion batteries.
The so-called carbon footprint refers to the total direct and indirect emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases (expressed in the form of CO2 emission equivalents) caused by a product during its life cycle. Carbon footprint is an indicator that measures the “carbon consumption” of a product. Carbon footprint certification provides a basis for product green design, provides a reference for reducing the use of raw materials and increasing the selection of low-carbon suppliers, and prepares products to enter the international market.
Mingtai Aluminum actively responded to the call. Related products have obtained carbon footprint certification and meet low-carbon environmental protection requirements, which is conducive to the company’s cooperation with new energy manufacturers.
3003 aluminum strip is an aluminum-manganese alloy with good processing performance, high temperature corrosion resistance, good heat transfer and electrical conductivity. It is currently mainly used in products such as power battery casings, battery covers, and water-cooled plates in the field of new energy. It has established cooperation with many automobile supporting manufacturers. 3003 aluminum alloy material has low density, soft material, stable and reliable performance, which is conducive to the development of lightweight vehicle bodies and has huge room for development in the field of new energy vehicles.
The carbon footprint of Mingtai Aluminum’s 3003 aluminum strip has been certified. It is a green, low-carbon and environmentally friendly aluminum material that responds to the national carbon peak and is carbon neutral. Mingtai has always been at the forefront.
