From 2018 onwards, Banner will not only continue to supply the BMW Group with AGM batteries, but also with its EFB range.
Deliveries will be made to four BMW Group locations in Europe. Lead-acid battery technology is sophisticated, reasonably priced and offers a high degree of recyclability.
The Enhanced Flooded Battery – EFB – is a strengthened wet battery that is used primarily for micro hybrid drives, which saves fuel by means of an automatic Start & Stop function and is now even being used in cars with brake energy recuperation!
Due to the advanced construction by using special Ca/Ca grides, an active material with special additives like carbon, a plate scrim inlay on the positive plates and a double-lid, the Running Bull EFB batteries are characterized by
- twice the cycle resistance of conventional batteries
- a high V3 vibration resistance-rating
- prevention of acid stratification in the battery
- maximum operational safety.
AGM and EFB technology represents a clear demonstration of Banner’s responsible approach to raw material conservation and sustainability.
