Lead from a battery can be recycled infinitely. See how our lead-acid battery recycling process creates a sustainable, closed-loop solution that helps conserve natural resources and protect the environment.
Once the batteries have been separated, the lead is purified, re-constituted in specific customer-driven formulas and resold – predominantly back to battery manufacturers. Having said that, lead is widely used in a number of applications, so our lead has also been reused for medical radiation shielding, wheel weights, roofing and ammunition.
The plastics are separated, cleaned and recycled for reuse in the making of new battery casings.
The acid is collected and managed in an environmentally sound manner.
