The goal of environmental sustainability is for humans and nature to exist in productive harmony. This definition clearly understands that production is at the basis of existence for both human and nature. Underlying this production in nature is recycling, as we generally understand, summed up in the universal adage, ‘ashes to ashes…’ It is also becoming more apparent that human production needs to meet up with this definition.
The recycling statistics show that 99% of lead-acid batteries are recycled each year, thereby ensuring that our land-fills, streams and general environment are free from waste.
The economic value in Lead Recycling ensures that people are incentivised to collect the Lead batteries for financial value. This model combined with the use of almost all the materials from the batteries ensure sustainable recycling.
