[en] In a context where we are increasingly aware of our planet’s limited capacities and the damage we are causing, environmental management techniques are emerged. Among these we find the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), which allows us to assess the environmental impacts of a product or a service throughout its cycle life.
The subject of this project-thesis is therefore the use of the LCA on one battery of the MiRIS project, named the Zinc-Iron flow battery. The purpose of this study is to add a new dimension to John Cockerill’s knowledge of their accumulators.
The report presents the analyzed results of the Zinc-Iron battery, promising alternative materials have been considered and discussed, and reviews its impacts in comparison to other batteries from the scientific literature (i.e. Vanadium flow and Lithium batteries).
Such an analysis is the first one undertaken for John Cockerill and has therefore led to a reflection about its future usefulness for the company, who seems favorable for its use.
