Recycle old batteries in Plants

Earth Day is April 22, but Gravita Exim will celebrate it for the whole month with its annual "Great Battery Roundup".

During April, Gravita Exim will accept scrap batteries and lead batteries at no cost; these used automotive or marine lead-acid batteries will be sent its plants where they can be recycled into new batteries and save the environment.

There are more than 9 Battery Recycling Plants of Gravita Exim all over the world that meet the criteria for Lead battery recycling.

Lead acid batteries are made up of plates, Lead, and Lead oxide with a 35% sulfuric acid and 65% water electrolyte solution. Lead acid batteries represent almost 60% of all batteries sold worldwide.

Car batteries contain about 18 pounds of lead and a pound of sulfuric acid, so they can be extremely hazardous and cause environmental contamination.

Battery Recycling Plant requires that the batteries be sorted according to chemistries. Some sorting must be done prior to the battery arriving at the recycling Plant. Nickel-cadmium, nickel-metal-hydride, lithium-ion and Lead acid are placed in designated boxes at the collection point.
