Terrapure is a leading provider of resource recovery solutions that create value from end-of-life products for customers throughout North America. With an unwavering focus on environmental, health and safety excellence, we provide services to the battery power-cell market that recover valuable resources from waste streams and repurpose them for reuse in the creation of new products, while reducing waste requiring disposal.
What We Do
We continually strive to find new ways to recover and upgrade the constituent components of end-of-life products to create value for our customers and society.
We partner with all major North American battery manufacturers to provide a sustainable closed-loop, circular-economy solution to capture spent batteries and recover their valuable components for reuse. This includes collecting and processing lead-acid batteries and producing high-quality recycled lead for battery manufacturers, as well as managing batteries and power cells of all chemistries, formats and sizes, including those from electric vehicles (EVs), industrial applications and consumer electronics and other products.
As an added value to customers, we upgrade virtually every component of a battery to recover the valuable metals, minerals, acids, plastics and other elements for reuse.
