LEAD RECYCLING

Sustainability in Action

A Model for Lasting Change

Lead batteries are widely recognized as one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly battery technologies available today. The circular infrastructure of lead batteries is one of the primary reasons for this. Unlike other types of batteries, lead batteries are highly recyclable, and nearly all components of the battery can be reused in the manufacturing of new batteries.

Furthermore, lead batteries have a low carbon footprint, as the manufacturing process for lead batteries requires less energy than other battery types.
