Why Lead battery recycling is necessary
Batteries are an essential resource material that we use in our day to day life. Batteries are of various sorts like Lithium batteries, Zinc batteries, Nickel Cadmium batteries etc. Like any other waste, batteries are that are inoperative or have extinguished their power to work any further is considered as e-waste or electronic waste. Every system has a waste management cycle so do batteries. This e-waste needs to be recycled in an appropriate and legitimate way. Especially lead batteries need extra care to handle that’s why there is a special lead battery recycling plant. It is high time that we need to implement effective ways to get rid of industrial waste.
Putting used lead-acid batteries in landfills and pits is not very favorable and can lead to adverse effects on the environment. This method of burying this e-waste leads to contamination of groundwater levels making is hazardous for consumption and other daily purposes. Unless and until the lead battery recycling plant uses environment-friendly and sound methods to do so the ill-effects can be avoided. It is crucial to remove these batteries from the waste management cycle before it reaches the ultimate disposal. Recycling lead-acid batteries prevent the emission of lead into the environment and also avoids unnecessary extraction of new lead from non renewable resources. Many parts of the world have well-established lead battery recycling plant.
When it comes to recycling of lead-acid batteries it is an easier and significantly cost-effective option compared to lead that needs to be extracted from the ore. Also, the lead that is obtained from secondary resources i.e through recycling is beneficial and has good market value. Less energy is needed for this method. Lead battery recycling plants with technical and pollution control measures are the need of the hour. More than 50 million tons of e-waste is generated globally and the quantity is rapidly increasing with each passing year. Less than 5% of which is being recycled, or reused appropriately. The content of this waste includes toxic materials as well as valuable and energy-intensive precious metals.
There are a variety of techniques used for lead recycling Smelting, Refining, Ingot casting machine, Pollution control and material handling.
