Recycling Technology

When it comes to battery recycling, "one size does not fit all".  With such an array of different types of batteries, we have developed an equally diverse array of technologies to ensure each battery component is recovered and treated in the most efficient and environmentally-sound way possible.

We tailor each process depending on the structure, form-factor, and recoverable components from each battery type.  We rely on automated hydrometallurgical processes, pyrometallurgical processes, and even hands-on mechanical disassembly.The process may be different, but the result is always the same… Recycling that is both safe and produces the highest yield of recoverable materials. 

What kind of batteries do you need to recycle?

NiCad and NiMH batteries share a similar recycling process. Through a proprietary pyrometallurgical process, battery components are converted into raw materials for new products.

Lithium Ion batteries are processed through our proprietary combination of hydrometallurgical and material separation treatment techniques. Completely automated, we believe we have the safest Li-Ion recycling process in the world.

Primary Lithium batteries are highly reactive, which is why our proprietary cryogenic process, which precedes any physical material separation, is essential to recycling these batteries in a safe and hazard free environment.

Alkaline batteries consist of Zinc, Manganese, and Steel.  All three components are recovered and put back into markets as secondary raw materials.
