Batteries contain heavy metals and toxic chemicals inside. And if being disposed improperly, these harmful materials could contaminate soil and pollute water. The goal of scrap batteries recycling is to prevent the hazardous materials from polluting our environment and to create business and job opportunities for more people. Scrap battery shredder is a popular recycling machine in scrap battery recycling.
There are various types of batteries made from different chemistries. Lead-Acid Batteries are rechargeable and widely used in cars, trucks, buses, scooters, golf carts, motorcycles etc. for in starting, lightning, and ignition (SLI). They are normally large and heavy in weight. This type of battery is the mostly recycled as the lead contained inside can be reused multiple times. Besides Lead Acid Battery, there are Alkaline/Zinc Carbon/Zinc Air Batteries, Lithium Batteries, Lithium Ion Batteries, Nickel-Cadmium, Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries, Silver Oxide Batteries and more. Each type of battery has their own recycling procedure, so the recycling process begins with sorting the collected waste batteries according to chemistries.
