Environmental Problem:

Waste Management of Scrap Lead Acid Batteries

The South Africa Government aims to reduce the amount waste by 70% by 2020.  The acid and lead contamination in South African water is some of the highest in the world.

The Batterie Plus Solution:

Regenerate Batteries Destined for Scrapping

As a direct result of regeneration any company using batteries can expose the environment to at least 50% less chemical waste and carbon emissions.

Environmental Consideration:

Improved Environmental Profile

Batterie Plus is the only company that provides its clients with an environmental impact report.  This reports reflects the amount of battery related chemicals that they keep out of the environment by using the regeneration process.

By regenerating the battery on an annual basis or on the recommendation of a Qualified Technician.

By extending the battery’s lifespan, optimize the acid in the battery and proper battery bay management by qualified, well trained staff.

Waste Management:

Before Regeneration

EXAMPLE:

A South African mine with 680 traction bateries, these batteries contain the following pollutants:

  • Plastic Casing
  • Acid Solution (Sulphuric Acid)
  • Lead Particles and various other dangerous Poisons.

CALCULATION ON  SA MINE WITH 680 TRACTION BATTERIES:

i1

The Waste Impact

Research has shown that the process of cell replacement starts from 18 -25 months.  Over a 5 year period the waste on batteries in this example will be doubled

i2

After Regeneration

The Regeneration process will reduce this mine’s waste by eliminating the early disposal of batteries.

Act on Carbon Dioxide

co-2-footprint-battery-regeneration

The regeneration system reduces Carbon Dioxide emissions which are created by the manufacturing of batteries

  • Reduces Carbon Dioxide emissions caused by less plastic manufacturing.
  • Reduces Carbon Dioxide emissions on lead  manufacturing.
  • Reduces pollution on acid manufacturing.
  • Reduces global warming.
