Pb-A Battery Tops Recycling Lists

It will come as no surprise to the industry that lead-acid has topped the most recycled list again in 2013, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency¡¯s (EPA) latest report.

It topped the chart once again as the weight of lead being recovered stayed constant the percentage of the amount being recycled rose my 3%.

The EPA stated that the rate of lead-acid battery recovery was about 99% (2.85 million tons) in its June 2015 report.  

In 2012 the recycling rate of lead-acid batteries was almost 96%, amounting to around 2.8 million tons.

However, as the recycling rates increase the dangers have also increased. Earlier this year BCI called for more stringent measures for identifying lead-acid and lithium-ion batteries to prevent cross contamination, which has led to explosions in recycling plants.
