Lead acid batteries have its self-life ranging from 3 years to five years and after competition of its life; it gets converted into lead acid battery scrap. It is categorized as hazardous scrap and very limited scope for Trans – boundary movement. There are certain set of guidelines to be complied in order to regularize the collection and processing of such hazardous scrap. The recycling process of lead acid battery needs to be environmentally sound processing technology. More than 70% lead produced globally is used for manufacturing of Lead Acid Batteries.
In normal process all lead acid consumers are supposed to return used batteries to authorized collection agency and these collection agencies are transport it to the authorized recyclers for reprocessing.
Lead battery scarp is available globally in forms of Lead Battery Plates (RAILS), Wet Whole Intact Batteries (RINK) and Drained/Dry Whole Intact Lead Batteries (RAINS)
We are participating in auctions of used Lead acid batteries being registered recycler. The general trade practice to export-import Lead acid battery scrap is to process the Lead acid battery scrap based on their categorization prior to stuffing of the containers/ transportation.
