About Battery Recycling Services
There are nearly 3 billion dry-cell batteries purchased in the US, annually. Some of the largest EV produces are expected to consume more than 4 billion Li-ion cells in 2020. While this shift towards high-capacity batteries to power devices including electronics, vehicles, and more is much more sustainable, it poses a challenge once the batteries reach end of life and need to be recycled.
With the continued growth of electronic devices and the desire for portability, the demand for batteries of all shapes and sizes continues. From portable powers tools, computers, mobile phones, household devices to cars, trucks and power supply units in facility management.
Batteries vary in size from a button to a unit weighing of hundreds of pounds. They also have different compositions, which can include Lithium-ion (Li-ion), alkaline, carbon zinc, lead acid gel, and lithium batteries.
